Hertfordshire has 102 parish councils, 11 town councils, 1 community council and 10 parish meetings.
Hertfordshire County Council is the Data controller. The data we hold is for the purpose of partnership communications. Hertfordshire County Council will use this information to communicate with organisations on partnership matters including promoting key engagement events and conferences.
We consider that it is in the legitimate interests of Hertfordshire County Council to process your information for these purposes. The information you have provided to us will be used alongside additional information obtained from partnership organisations themselves.
The information you give us will be held by the Corporate Policy team of Hertfordshire County Council and will only be used to communicate with organisations on partnership matters.
We will only share information with third parties if we are legally obliged to do so, for example if it is necessary to safeguard or protect a child. We may also share information with the police or other agencies if it is necessary for the following purposes:
a) The prevention or detection of crime
b) The apprehension or prosecution of offenders
c) The assessment or collection of any tax or duty or any imposition of a similar nature
They vary in size – a large town council can cover 35,000 people and provide a wide range of services. A small parish might only have 100 people and provide a small number of services.
