Access to Information

GRNSW is required to make certain information available to the public under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) (GIPA Act).

GRNSW publishes a large amount of information on its websites, including www.grnsw.com.au and www.thedogs.com.au.

If you cannot find the information you are looking for on our websites, you can ask GRNSW whether the information has already been released proactively in some other form (for example, in printed form). You can contact GRNSW by telephone (02) 8767 0500 to ask for documents you cannot locate on the websites.

If the information you are seeking is not available on this website and is not otherwise routinely provided by GRNSW on request, then you have a right to formally apply for access to specific information.
