General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The Data Protection law changed on the 25 May 2018.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU.

The Parish Council has been greatly assisted by Leicestershire & Rutland Association of Local Councils (LRALC) who have worked with the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) to ensure that councils became compliant or were working on becoming compliant before the deadline date.

The ICO offered a '12 step' guidance sheet to assist with the changes and Steps 1 to 12 can be found on the About the Council page on this website, or you can follow this link to take you straight to the page:
