– Local Advisory Committee
I refer to your official information request dated 15 October 2022 where you have requested
information relating to Local Advisory Committees.
The OIA requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no later than 20 working days
after the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time
limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our decision
to 5 December 2022.
The reason for the extension is that consultations necessary to make a decision on your request
are such that a proper response to your request cannot reasonably be made within the original
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision.
Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
