Confidentiality and data protection

The Department for Transport (DfT) is carrying out this consultation to decide on the future of pavement parking enforcement policy including your:

  • favoured option of enforcement
  • views on all enforcement options
  • views on the vehicles exempted from these proposals
  • views on the effect of the policies on different societal groups

and your reasons in order to gain a thorough understanding of your viewpoint.

This consultation and the processing of personal data that it entails is necessary for the exercise of our functions as a government department. If your answers contain any information that allows you to be identified, DfT will, under data protection law, be the controller for this information.

In this consultation we're asking for:

  • your name and email address, in case we need to ask you follow-up questions about your responses (you do not have to give us this personal information, but if you do provide it, we will use it only for the purpose of asking follow-up questions)
  • whether you are representing an organisation and if so the name of that organisation

Plus as an individual we are asking for your views towards pavement parking in your local area and the reasons, to attempt to understand how much local action affects your viewpoint.

Additionally for an organisation we will ask:

  • for the organisation name, for identification of the business
  • if your organisation is a commercial business with deliveries and, if so, the amount of deliveries and your view towards the 20 minute delivery exemption, since this criteria is still open to change
  • if your organisation is a council and, if so, for numerous extended views on the
    - impacts
    - issues
    - costs
    - problems
    - implementation
    of the options plus previous parking enforcement experience at a local level to better inform our final decision
