Informal Access

If you are seeking information from Murray River Council, which is not published on our website, or looking for your personal information kept in Council's records, you can make an Informal Access Application to access that information.

Please note that Council is authorised to release information held by it to a person in response to an informal request by the person (that is, a request that is not a formal access application) unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure of the information.

If you wish to talk about your concerns or have any questions, please call Council on 03 5884 3302 and talk to the Right to Information Officer.

Making an Informal Request Application

An application must be made on the approved Informal Access Application form, or alternately can be submitted in writing but must:

  • clearly indicate it is an informal request application made under the GIPA Act;

  • state your postal address in Australia; and

  • provide sufficient detail to enable the Right to Information Officer to identify the requested information.

Fees and Charges

There is no application fee for an informal request for information, however, normal copying charges may apply.

For a full list of fees and charges, please see topic titled Fees and Charges.
