Please provide the un redacted copy of the statement as it is clearly hiding the point of the additional 2 lots.

These were acknowledged in our letter to you of 19 October 2023 (sent to
your personal email), which acknowledged these requests and several
others.  We advised you that we are treating these additional requests as
one request, and notified you of an extension of time to make our
decision, to 28 March 2024. If we can respond sooner, we will do so.

 

We advised you that in accordance with section 15A(1)(a) of the Act, this
extension is necessary because your request necessitates a search through
a large quantity of information and meeting the original time limit would
unreasonably interfere with our operations. 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
[2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

Dear Kainga Ora Correspondence,

I do not accept the aggregating of requests into a single OIA and the extension of time until march 2024. Many of these questions the information is readily available and should be responded to in a timely manner.

Thus I request each OIA is dealt with on an individual basis and responded to individually to their respective threads.

Yours sincerely,

Barry Murphy

Dear Mr Murphy

 

Thank you for the seven emails received on 14 November. Your comments have
been noted.

 

Kāinga Ora has replied to 30 of your emails and requests. The first
received on 18 July 2023. We are considering the other 19 requests under
the terms of the Official Information Act. If you are dissatisfied with
the responses you have received or with our handling of your requests then
you may make a formal complaint to the Ombudsman on each of the points you
are dissatisfied with.

 

Through your requests you have the information that is available on this
development. Much of this information is now accessible online for all
members of the public to review at [1]Teitei Drive :: Kāinga Ora – Homes
and Communities (kaingaora.govt.nz).

 

In the future, we will not respond to further emails, such as these seven
received on 14 November, which express your opinion and do not constitute
new requests for official information as defined under the terms of the
Act.
