The following privacy notice applies to Planning Policy service, including Housing Strategy.
In order to provide this service, it is necessary for the Council to collect, store and process some personal information. Rutland County Council is the data controller for the personal information collected.
Purposes of processing your personal data
We need to process your personal information in order to prepare Planning Policy documents and Housing Strategy policies, in particular when dealing with consultation responses and submissions for consideration.
Consulting on the preparation of a Local Plan is a statutory duty under the Town and Country Planning Act and is carried out in line with the Council's published Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). There are also a number of other planning documents which support this, such as Neighbourhood Plans (produced by Parish and Town Councils and any designated Neighbourhood Forums), Supplementary Planning Documents and Community Infrastructure Levy policy documents. The Council also has to prepare a number of policy documents to support our strategic and operational housing duties.
We have to collect information on payment, delivery, feasibility, needs and conformity with requirements. We also process information needed for evidence base documents and assessment of requirements, including information from Energy Performance Certificate datasets and housing needs information.
