As a council we have obligations under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) to provide information that is requested by any member of the public.

The guiding principle of the law is that information shall be made available unless there is a good reason for withholding it.

If you wish to make a request for information from the Chatham Islands Council under the LGOIMA, or otherwise, please submit it via the form on our Contact page.

Your rights are set out in the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.
