The IPC supports Local Government Week 3 – 9 August 2020

The IPC is proud to support Local Government Week, which is designed to showcase the work councils do in their local communities, including the wide variety of services they provide.

This year’s theme is ‘Councils Do’. From 3 to 9 August 2020, local government areas across NSW celebrate council services that extended beyond roads, rates and rubbish to include areas such as public libraries, childcare centres, sporting facilities, arts and culture, building and development, and more.

Councils have a large influence on where we live, work and play. Councils make important decisions that impact the everyday lives of NSW citizens. The IPC supports transparency in information about how councils work, their decision-making and the private interests of councillors and designated employees.

The IPC has resources to assist you in understanding your privacy rights and right to access council information.

We also support councils with dedicated agency resources in both privacy and information access.

You can learn more about Local Government Week on the Local Government NSW website or visit your local council’s website to find out what is happening in your area.
