Official information requests

Make a request for official information (LGOIMA)

You can make a request for official information under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) and the Privacy Act 1993.

We will make a decision within 20 working days on whether your request is to be granted. While we will try to also provide you with the information within the 20 working days, sometimes the actual information requested may be provided outside that timeframe. Tauranga City Council doesn’t charge for requests for information under LGOIMA unless they will take a considerable amount of staff time or are repeat requests.
