No doubt you have all been on the receiving end of a flurry of emails this week due to the GDPR compliance deadline. For those that may have gone unscathed, this piece of legislation has been brought in across the EU to deal with personal and sensitive data protection issues. Like many other businesses I have been reviewing my procedures and have uploaded a privacy statement onto my website. It has also made me ponder about how many 4 letter acronyms are left (and how many have been used in planning, which is renowned for its jargon). I am also grateful that at least internet traffic is not the same as road traffic – otherwise there would have been absolute chaos on the roads this week, not to mention the smog!
And finally… like ships passing in the night, Hazelbury Bryan’s Pre-submission Consultation ended, while Holwell’s consultation began. Luckily a lot of the far-flung statutory consultees can be emailed the various documents involved. Congratulations to both groups on reaching this milestone.
