Chief Ombudsman releases opinion on Auckland Council complaint

Issue date:

Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has asked Auckland Council to apologise to Radio New Zealand over the way the Council dealt with a request for official information.

“I believe an apology is necessary because I have found the Council’s handling of the request was unreasonable and contrary to law in some respects.”

RNZ complained about a five-month delay in obtaining a Council report under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act (LGOIMA) on the future of the imported vehicle trade at the Ports of Auckland.
