The personal data that you provide will be used to enable the Council to identify who has responded to Planning Policy consultation and, where requested, to enable the Council to correspond with you regarding upcoming consultations related to Planning Policies. The legal basis for this processing is in the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act in conjunction with the Town and Country Planning Regulation 2012 (as amended).

Where you have made a representation in response to a planning policy consultation document, we will publish and share your name and your representation with all interested parties in relation to the relevant consultation document.  (Please note that your contact details (postal address, email address and telephone number) will be redacted and will not be shared or published).  Organisations that we may share information with include the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State or any other similar individual.

You are entitled to withdraw your representation up until the point that the consultation closes. Should you do so, your representation and associated data will be permanently deleted as soon as reasonably possible, and your representation will not be taken into account.

Where you have indicated an interest in being notified of future planning consultations, your personal data will be held to enable you to be notified of relevant consultations.

Your personal data will be stored in accordance with our retention policy. In the event that you have requested to be notified of future planning policy documents, your personal data will be held for that purpose until such time that you notify the Council that you no longer wish your personal data to be held.

You have the right to access your personal data and to complain if you think your data is being used incorrectly. See the Council’s main Privacy Notice for full details on your personal data rights, contact details for the Data Controller and the Data Protection Officer, and further information.
