Privacy notice - Gypsy and Traveller Team


This privacy notice covers the collection of data by the Gypsy and Traveller Team.

The collection of data is required to:

  • ensure residents on East Sussex County Council’s (the Council) permanent and transit sites can maintain a licence giving them permission to reside
  • maintain a waiting list of those wishing to reside permanently at any of the Council’s 4 permanent gypsy and traveller sites
  • record the number of transient individuals and unauthorised encampments within the area
  • allow support work provided by the Gypsy and Traveller Team and external support organisations

CCTV is also present on our transit site and this is line with the Council’s existing Surveillance privacy notice.

East Sussex County Council takes data protection seriously. Please be assured that your information will be used appropriately in line with data protection legislation, will be stored securely and will not be processed unless the requirements for fair and lawful processing can be met.
