Personal information requests

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act) you have the right to know what information the council holds about you by making a request for your personal information. A request of this nature is referred to as a subject access request. This right however is sometimes subject to specific exemptions.

To find out more about your rights under the GDPR and the Act visit the Information Commissioner’s website.
