Data protection

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 apply in the UK and work together to govern the processing of personal data. The legislation places duties on organisations on how they collect, process, store and disclose information about people. It also gives individuals (data subjects) the right of access to information held about themselves.

More information can be found on our Data Protection page on the left hand menu.

If you would like to know how and why the council process information about you please see our Privacy Notice.

The council is required to appoint a Data Protection Officer, who is responsible for monitoring our compliance with data protection legislation and advising on our data protection obligations.

If you have any questions or worries about how the council collects or uses your personal information you can contact the Data Protection Officer (details at the bottom of the page).

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 give a right of access to a wide range of information held by public authorities like us and requires us to release information on request, unless an exemption applies.

More information can be found on our Freedeom of Information page on the left hand menu.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regulates these pieces of legislation and provides information for individuals on how the legislation affects them.
