Objections & Submissions
Hurstville City Council considers all submissions made within the advertised exhibition period.
If you are making a submission on an application, read about:
The supply of personal information is voluntary. If personal information is not provided, Council may be limited in dealing with an application or submission. Applications, submissions, summaries of submissions, and/or names and addresses of people making applications and submissions may be included in publicly available documents including reports to Council meetings.
Please note that, in accordance with section 18(1)(b) of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (NSW), you are advised that all documents including electronic documents received by Council in relation to any matter will be placed on the appropriate Council file and may be disclosed to Councillors, Council Officers, consultants to Council or members of the public.
Council is required under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) (GIPA Act) to publish certain information, known as open access information. The Regulation made under the GIPA Act also lists additional open access information that local councils must make publicly available. This includes information about applications, and other information about council approvals and orders that may contain personal information. Councils must disclose this open access information on their websites and make it publicly available for inspection and copying. The requirement to publish information on a website applies unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure, or if it would involve an unreasonable cost to the agency.
If you do not wish information to be publicly available, as we are required to do under GIPA, please ensure that you write to the General Manager detailing the information you don’t want made public and the reasons why Council should not publish that information. Council will make a determination under the GIPA Act.
