Turner and Gold Coast City Council
(2001 L0007, 18 May 2001) 

The applicant sought access to complaints made to the Gold Coast City Council about his property.  The Council identified one document as falling within the terms of the applicant's FOI access application, and granted access to that document, subject to the deletion of a postal address and signature which the Council found were exempt from disclosure under s.42(1)(b) of the FOI Act. 

Assistant Information Commissioner Shoyer considered the application of s.42(1)(b) and the principles stated in McEniery and Medical Board of Queensland (1994) 1 QAR 349, and affirmed the decision under review.
