In the event access is desired to a record not considered to be routine in nature a formal request should be made using the form provided, or an equivalent written request.
Important points to note when making an application:
Example Request #1:
"Please provide copies of all planning reports and studies undertaken over the last 10 years."
Very broad - applicability to specific records open to interpretation; volume of research required would likely result in additional cost to applicant.
Example Request #2:
"Please provide copies of planning reports and studies undertaken on the Tabor Lake watershed over the last 10 years."
Acceptable - will require interpretation of some records for applicability, may require time extension for full compliance.
Example Request #3:
"Please provide copies of the planning studies undertaken on the Tabor Lake watershed and published during 1999-2003."
Best practise - request is precise, compliance assured within allowable timeframe.
