Christchurch City Council regularly publishes responses to Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) requests that are considered to be of wider public interest or relate to a subject that has been widely requested.

LGOIMA compliance and practice at Christchurch City Council

The Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier reviewed the Council’s Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act (LGOIMA) compliance and practices between October 2018 and July 2019.

His investigation included consideration of the Council’s supporting administrative structures, leadership and culture, process and practice – including information management, public participation, and proactive release of information.

The Chief Ombudsman found that while there are areas of good practices, some do not support openness and transparency.
