1. Council will use information provided on this form to process this application. It can also be made available by law to other government agencies. You can find more information about your privacy rights in Council’s Privacy Management Plan on Council’s website or by contacting Council’s Privacy Contact Officer (the Internal Ombudsman) on 1300 36 2170.

2. Copyright applies to most plans and reports. However, section 43(2)(a) of the Copyright Act (Cth) 1968 states that a fair dealing with a literary or artistic work does not infringe copyright in the work if it is for the purpose of giving professional advice by a legal practitioner. Therefore, if you are a legal practitioner and you are seeking a copy of a plan or report subject to copyright, you must state in this application, or an attached letter, that you are a legal practitioner, seeking a copy of the particular plan or report for the purpose of giving professional advice to one of your clients.
