Your right to information
On 1 July 2010 new right to information legislation came into effect, replacing the former Freedom of Information Act 1989
. The Government Information (Public Access) Act (GIPA) applies to government owned businesses. As Australian Technology Park Sydney Limited (ATPSL) is owned by the UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation, it is required to comply.
The new law:
- creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government
- encourages government agencies and government owned companies to proactively release government information.
You can find out more about your right to information and new ways to access NSW Government information through the Information and Privacy Commission NSW website at www.ipc.nsw.gov.au
