Please complete this form if you wish to apply for an internal review of a decision made under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) by the
Department of Planning and Environment (DPE).
You must lodge this form within 20 working days after notice of the decision was given to you or within 20 working days of a deemed refusal. A deemed refusal is when
did not decide your application on time.
If you need help filling out this form, please contact the DPE GIPA team on (02) 9860 1440 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
General information about accessing government information under the GIPA Act is available at our website.
If you are not the access applicant, but instead a third party consulted in respect of a GIPA application, you can ask for
a review of a decision to provide access to information contrary to your objections (section 80(d) of the GIPA Act).
As a third party, you can also ask for a review of a decision to include information in a disclosure log despite your objections (section 80(m) of the GIPA Act).
