Dear Mr Smith 
Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 
Re: Unilateral declarations of independence 
I refer to your email, which we received on 19 November 2013, requesting information about 
unilateral declarations of independence. 
There have been no unilateral declarations of independence received by Auckland Council 
since the advent of the supercity  or the re-election of Len Brown as mayor.  Therefore your 
request is refused under section 17  (e) That the document alleged to contain the information 
requested does not exist or cannot be found. 
You have the right to seek review of Council’s refusal to disclose any information under this 
letter by application to the Office of the Ombudsman. 
If you have any further queries please contact me on (09) 3010101, quoting Official 
Information Request No. 9000126606. 
Yours sincerely
