General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) became law. The law requires Highways England to explain to you – consultees, stakeholders and customers – how your personal data will be used and stored.

Highways England adheres to the government’s consultation principles, the Planning Act 2008 and the Highways Act 1980 as required and may collect personal data to help shape development of highways schemes.

Personal data collected by the project team will be processed and retained by Highways England and its appointed contractors until the scheme is complete.

  • right to restrict procession or to object to processing
  • right to data portability

If, at any point, Highways England plans to process the personal data we hold for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected, we will tell you what that other purpose is.

We will do this prior to any further processing taking place and we will include any relevant additional information, including your right to object to that further processing. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, the Information Commissioners Office.
