RTI Access Application Amendments
If the documents provided to you by Council, either through normal access or an Right to Information/ Information Privacy application, contains inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading personal information, you may request to have the information amended.
In many cases this can be achieved informally, by contacting the relevant business unit of Council, responsible for the information and providing advice that the information is incorrect. For example, an incorrect address on a rates notice can be changed by notifying Financial Services of the correct details.
Alternatively, you can make a formal request to amend your personal information via a letter to Council's RTI/IP Decision-Maker.
You can also download and complete a Personal Information amendment application form provided by the Queensland Government Right to Information website and forward to Council's RTI/IP Decision-Maker.
