Before submitting a formal Right to Information (RTI) or Information Privacy (IP) application, you should check to see if the information is already available through:

We also recommend contacting our Right to Information team on (07) 3452 6949 or email RTI@dsdilgp.qld.gov.au to discuss the type of information you are requesting and whether it can be released without a formal request.

If you need to make a formal RTI request you can do so in one of the following ways:

Applications under the RTI or IP Acts for documents held by local government councils must be submitted directly to the relevant local government council using the printable RTI application form.

Apply to amend personal information in documents

Under the IP Act, you may apply to amend documents containing your personal information that you believe is inaccurate, misleading, out of date or incomplete. You can do this after you have already accessed the information, normally through an informal request.

If you need to make a formal application to amend personal information, download the Information Privacy Personal Information Amendment Application form and submit a completed form to the department:

  • by email: RTI@dsdilgp.qld.gov.au
  • by post:

    Right to Information
    Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning
    PO Box 15009
    City East, Queensland 4002

There are no charges for applications to amend personal information.
