Dear Mr Aitken
Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987
Thank you for contacting Auckland Council on 30 August 2015. Your request for CCTV footage of the
intersection of Remuera Road and Victoria Avenue on 29 August 2015 between 12.30am and 1.30am was
referred to Auckland Transport on 31 August 2015.
The purpose of the CCTV surveillance is to better manage the road network, not as a primary security
tool. Therefore the incident you have mentioned may not have been recorded. Where footage of a specific
incident or alleged crime is available, Auckland Transport provides footage to New Zealand Police upon receipt
of a request from them.
Notwithstanding the above, in this instance a review of the footage reveals that we do not hold any recording of
the specific incident. Your request is therefore declined under Section 17(e) of the LGOIMA as the information
you are requesting does not exist.
We trust this information has addressed the matters raised however you have the right in accordance with
section 27(3) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) to make a
complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman if you are not satisfied with our response.
