The processing of personal information is required to effectively manage our parking schemes. The Council has a statutory duty to manage parking on our civil parking enforcement areas. Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under the Traffic Management Act 2004 and Transport Act 2000.

East Sussex is exercising official authority (for example, a public body’s tasks, functions, duties or powers) which is laid down by law.


The processing of your data is carried out on the basis of legitimate interest in the task. Our consultations provide residents, businesses and other stakeholders the opportunity to comment on proposals which may impact them in the future. The processing of data is necessary to achieve accurate and informed results. The minimum amount of data is collected and used only for this purpose.
