Privacy Notice - Rural Exception Site Registration

Your personal information - what we need and why?

If you would like to register your land as a potential rural exception site, the Council will need your permission to hold personal information about you and your land. This includes your name, home address, email, telephone number and land location details. We will not collect any personal data from you we do not need.
The information you provide will be retained within our Planning Policy data base.

Who does the Council share your data with?

It may be necessary to share your personal information internally and to form a register of potential land. However, no other third parties have access to your information, unless the law allows them to do so. The land details you provide will be used to conduct a consultation with the local community.

How long does the Council keep your data?

The Council will maintain your personal data for the period that your land remains on the register. If you no longer wish to be included on the register, please inform the Council. We will then securely dispose of your data.

What are your rights?

If at any point you believe the information the Council holds is incorrect you may request to see this information and have it corrected or deleted. If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Officer who will investigate the matter.
