Freedom of Information

What is Freedom of Information


The Freedom of Information Act 1991 provides a legally enforceable right of access to documents within South Australian State & Local Government’s possession. The purpose of Freedom of Information (FOI) is to make the business of government and Council is open and accountable.

The Freedom of Information Act 1991 allows you -

  • to access documents within the council’s possession
  • amend documents that relate to you

A large number of Council documents are available to the public through the City of Playford website. Printed copies of these documents are also available at Customer Care Centres.

The Freedom of Information Act provides access to some of the documents not already available to the public.
