Sufficiency of search 

The applicant raised a 'sufficiency of search' issue regarding the existence of additional documents concerning the respondent's investigation of a noise complaint made against the applicant. 

Applying the principles stated in Shepherd and Department of Housing, Local Government & Planning (1994) 1 QAR 464, Assistant Commissioner Moss was satisfied that the searches and inquiries which the respondent had conducted in an effort to locate additional documents responsive to the terms of the applicant's FOI access application had been reasonable in all the circumstances of the case, and that there were no reasonable grounds for believing that additional documents existed in the respondent's possession or under its control.
