Right to Information is the Queensland Government’s approach to giving the community greater access to information. We are committed to provide access to information held by Central Highlands Regional Council, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.
The Right to Information Act and Information Privacy Act both came into effect on 1 July 2009, replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992.
Right to Information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals’ privacy.
The Right to Information Act is complemented by the Information Privacy Act, which establishes a right to access and to amend personal information.
