Dear Mr Preston
Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987
Re: Public Records Act 2005
I write further to your email, which we received on 15 May 2018, requesting an explanation
about Auckland Council’s compliance with the Public Records Act 2005 (the Act
We consider that your email does not request information, but rather requires Council to
form an opinion, and therefore create new information to answer your request. Accordingly,
we are refusing your request for information pursuant to section 17(e) of the Local
Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA
), as the information
requested does not exist.
However, please note that Auckland Council is committed to complying with its obligations
under the LGOIMA. Additionally, Council is continually looking at the ways we can adapt our
processes and procedures to improve our record keeping and ensure compliance with our
obligations under the LGOIMA.
Should you believe Auckland Council has not responded appropriately to your request, you
have the right by way of complaint, under section 27(3) of the LGOIMA, to apply to the
Ombudsman to seek an investigation and review of the decision.
If you have any further queries please contact me on 09 301 0101 quoting Official
Information Request No. 8140002949.
