Land Development Agency: One request remained pending as at 11 May 2018. This request was received by transfer from CMTEDD following the Administrative Arrangements 2017 (No 1) and is being processed as two requests as the FOI request relates to two separate blocks. Processing delays are attributed to activities associated with Machinery of Government changes, applicant confirmation of scope revision, and resourcing pressures due to a large volume of requests and the introduction of the new FOI legislation. The request is expected to be finalised on 30 June 2018.
