The council has a duty to respond to all rights requests made under data protection legislation within 30 calendar days (one month) of receiving them. You will be informed of the deadline for your request in an acknowledgement email or letter, depending on how you made your request to us.

If your request is complex or very time-consuming, the council can extend this deadline by two calendar months. In these situations, you will be contacted by the council and informed that your deadline has been extended and the reasons why.
