Public Interest Disclosure


What is a Public Interest Disclosure?

The Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Act 2018 establishes a process that encourages and facilitates the disclosure of public interest information to certain persons or authorities. This information is a Public Interest Disclosure.

A Public Interest Disclosure is a disclosure (report) that is made by a person who discloses to a relevant authority (in local government, that is a council), information that indicates wrongdoing in relation to two types of public interest information:

  • Environmental and Health Information
  • Public Administration Information

Kingston District Council is committed to upholding the principles of transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices and, therefore, encourages the making of disclosures that reveal public interest information.
