how we will use your personal data
It is necessary to collect and use personal information in order to comply with our legal obligations under the Planning Act 2008.

We will only use your personal data for the purpose for which we collect it, including the following:

- Communicating with landowners and occupiers about MVV, including negotiations with those people.
- Surveying land that may be affected by MVV.
- Consulting on MVV and reporting to the Secretary of State, Planning Inspectorate or local authorities on the consultation. This may involve passing your personal data to those parties, and in some cases we are required to publish the data as part of a consenting process.

You have the following rights:
- To request access to, rectification or erasure of your personal data.
