Privacy notice for Community Governance Review


What you can and can’t comment on

We cannot accept your comments if:

  • you do not provide a Chelmsford area postcode
  • you make a comment which we feel is discriminatory, as we have a legal duty to avoid discrimination and foster good relations between different community groups

As part of the review, we are unable to consider:

  • any individual matters
  • issues regarding specific Councillors
  • matters within parish councils

If you submit your comments online, we will send an auto-acknowledgement. If you comment by post, we will not be able to acknowledge your submission. We will not enter into individual correspondence for any submissions.


Publishing the results

When we publish the results, we will remove any names and only include the first four digits of your postcode. We will publish the names of any organisation that submits views. Therefore, you need to make sure you have permission to respond from the organisation before you make your submission. We will not make any other personal details public.

We will hold the details of all respondents on a database. We will only use the data for matters relating to the Community Governance Review. We will share the data with specialist consultants, who will help us complete the review. We will apply data protection requirements to any consultant undertaking this work. 

We will publish our initial findings in July 2021. 


Next steps

We will use your feedback to inform the initial recommendations we present to our Governance Committee in July.
