Because you have given your consent for the Council to process your data you can withdraw that consent whenever you wish. In the event that you choose to withdraw your consent prior to the adoption of the Planning Policy document on which you have made representations, it will not be possible to take account of that representation.

Your representation, including your name, will be made available to all interested parties in relation to the Development Plan Document on which you have made a representation, including  the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to inspect (or in the case of Community Infrastructure Levy the appointed Examiner).  Your contact details (postal address, email address and telephone) will be redacted and will not be made available.

Your personal data will be stored indefinitely.  In the event that you have requested to be notified of future planning policy documents, your personal data will be held for that purpose until such time that you notify the Council that you no longer wish your personal data to be held.
