General Data Protection Regulations Statement

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force. This legislation requires Highways England to explain to consultees, stakeholders and customers how their personal data will be used and stored. Highways England adheres to the Government’s Consultation Principles, the Planning Act 2008 and the Highways Act 1980 as required, and may collect personal data to help shape development of highways schemes. 

Personal data collected for the A47 Guyhirn scheme will be processed and retained by Highways England and its appointed contractors until the scheme is complete. Under the GDPR regulations you have the right to request the following information from us: 

1. Right of access to the data (Subject Access Request). 
2. Right for the rectification of errors. 
3. Right to erasure of personal data – this is not an absolute right under the legislation. 
4. Right to restrict processing or to object to processing. 
5. Right to data portability. 

If, at any point, Highways England plans to process the personal data we hold for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected, we will provide you with information about what that other purpose is. This will be done prior to any further processing taking place. The extra information will include any relevant further information as referred to above, including the right to object to that further processing. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, the Information Commissioners Office. If you’d like more information about how we manage data, or a copy of our privacy notice, please contact [email protected]
