Personal data - GDPR

Any councillor who processes personal data on a computer (e.g. names and addresses of residents contacted about planning matters, or for election canvassing is a data controller separate from the council. As a result such a councillor would have to pay the Data Protection fee of £40.

A councillor who does not process personal data or does so without using a computer is not required to pay the fee.

Legal Briefing L05-18 issued in April 2018 provides some further information.
