To promote open, accountable, fair and effective government in NSW, members of the public have a right to access government information. This right is restricted only when there is an overriding public interest against disclosing the particular information.

You have the right to access certain government information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) (GIPA Act). The objective of the GIPA Act is to make government information more accessible to the public.

Public access to the government information system is overseen by the Information and Privacy Commission.

Documents tabled in Parliament

CCRDC does not have any documents tabled in Parliament, except for:

  • Annual Report 2014/2015 
  • Annual Report 2013/2015

All contracts the Corporation enters into with the private sector valued over $150,000 must be recorded in the register of government contracts, which is published on the Government tender's website.

Details of each contract must be entered into the register within 60 days of coming into effect, and must remain on the register for 30 days or until the contract is complete, whichever is longer.
The Government tenders website also provides details of current tender opportunities - click here for further details: https://tenders.nsw.gov.au/
Details of information not disclosed to the public

CCRDC must keep a record of any open access information that they do not make publicly available on the basis of an overriding public interest against disclosure. The record must indicate only the general nature of the information concerned.

When we decide that particular "open access information" should not be publicly available, a record of the decision will be made public here.

How can I access information held by CCRDC?

If the information you are seeking is not available on this website and is not otherwise routinely provided by CCRDC on request, then you have a right to formally apply for access to specific information.

You can make a formal application by downloading and completing the Government Information Access Application Form – PDF and sending it to us at the following address:

Executive Manager
Central Coast Regional Development Corporation 
PO Box 7120
Kariong, NSW 2250

The GIPA Act says that we are only able to accept access applications that:

  • are in writing and sent to us at the address above
  • clearly state you are requesting information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009(NSW)
  • enclose the $30 application fee (Processing charges can also be imposed at the rate of $30 per hour. In some circumstances an advance fee may be required.)
  • have a return postal address as the address for correspondence
  • include as much specific information as necessary to enable us to identify the information you are asking for

If your application does not include these 5 things, it will be invalid and will not be processed. If that happens however, we will let you know, and help you if possible, by explaining how you can make a valid application.

Otherwise we will write to acknowledge receipt of a valid access application within 5 working days, and will deal with your application within 20 working days (subject to any extension allowed for under the Act). If any extension of time is required to deal with your application, we will let you know in writing.
