NK & DK and Pine Rivers Shire Council and Another (Third Party)
(210036, 6 June 2007)
Section 42(1)(g) Endanger the security of a building
This is an application where the applicants sought review of the Council decision to release to a third party their house plans subject to the deletion of their names and address under section 44(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 1992 (Qld) (FOI Act). First Assistant Commissioner Rangihaeata found that the plans were exempt in their entirety under section 42(1)(g) of the FOI Act on the basis that there are real and substantial grounds that disclosure of the plans to the world at large would assist a person to determine the best access points for entry into the residence and therefore endanger the security of the building in issue.
