The Commissioner has satisfied herself that the Council holds no such ‘rules’, and because the complainant already knew that fact when he made his request, the Council was entitled to refuse his request in reliance on Regulation 12(4)(b) of the EIR. The Commissioner has also decided that the Council has contravened Regulation 11 of the EIR by failing to review its decision to apply Regulation 12(4)(b).
