Freedom of Information

Please note: some Adelaide Hills Council staff continue to work remotely in response to COVID-19 restrictions, and whilst it is not anticipated this will impact on timelines for Freedom of Information applications, should an extension of time be required due to the availability of manual records we will contact you to discuss.

Many of Council's policies, codes and registers are available through Council's Service Centre's for inspection and/or purchase by the public (for a fee as set out in Council's Fees and Charges Policy).  Most are available on this website at no charge. 

A list of these documents are contained in our Freedom of Information Statement. To access documents not listed in the Freedom of Information Statement, a Freedom of Information request can be made.

Freedom of Information (FOI) applications can be submitted either using a FOI application form or in writing. The application must be as specific as possible to enable the correct documents to be identified. Application forms are available online at State Records.

An application fee (in accordance with Council's Fees & Charges Policy) must accompany the application. Applications under this legislation will be dealt with as soon as practicable (and in any case, within 30 days) after receipt.

The State Records website also has detailed information on the FOI process.

FOI requests should be addressed to:

Freedom of Information Officer
Adelaide Hills Council
PO Box 44
Woodside SA 5244

Council acknowledges that we conduct our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land.
