Disclosures Log


In addition to Open Access Information, Council has an obligation to keep a record called a Disclosure Log.

The Disclosure Log details information previously released to an applicant under a Formal Access Application that Council considers would be of interest to other members of the public. Council must record the following details about the application in its disclosure log:

  • The date the access application was decided.
  • A description of the information released.
  • Whether any of the information is available to other members of the public.
  • If so available, how it can be accessed.

The Disclosure Log does not have to include the following information:

  • Information on applications for personal information regarding the applicant.
  • Information about applications where factors involving the applicant were a consideration in whether or not the disclosure of the information was in the public interest.

The information included in the Disclosure Log can be accessed by contacting Council's Public Officer on (02) 6591 7222 or email council@midcoast.nsw.gov.au
