2. What sort of information can you have?

As a general rule, you can request any information created within the council or received from elsewhere and held by the council for any reason.  It can include agendas, minutes, policies, reports and expenditure.

The 'spirit' of the Act is of full disclosure although some exemptions apply, where certain information should not be released to protect confidentiality.
