Fair processing notice for commenting on planning applications

Under the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018, we are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office to collect, hold and process personal data under registration number Z5031756.

Specific personal contact data such as your email address, signature and telephone number will not be published on the Waverley Borough Council website but will be retained for contact purposes only by the planning department at Waverley Borough Council.

You should also be aware that your name, contact address and comments may be more widely published on the web in relation to public planning committee meetings within minutes and agendas relating to the planning application and any subsequent appeal hearings held by the Planning Inspectorate.

All comments received in respect of planning applications will become background papers (as defined in the Access to Information Act 1985) and accordingly will be available for public inspection and will be published on the Council’s website.

It may be possible your name and address will appear in search results on internet browsers/search engines (over which we have no control).
