Privacy Notice - Community Governance Review

Why we collect information about you

Kettering Borough Council (KBC) is collecting mainly anonymised data to obtain the local populations’ view in relation to a Town Council for Kettering. This consists of answers to multiple-choice questions, none of which contain personally identifiable data. Some questions provide free-text options for written answers. We ask participants not to use these fields to provide any personal information.

How will we use the information we hold about you?

The information you provide will be analysed to determine whether a Town Council should be created for the town of Kettering following Local Government Reform in April 2021.  The overall results of the consultation will be used to inform the publication of final proposals, which will also be consulted upon.

What is the basis for us to process your data?

Kettering Borough Council is processing your data as part of a consultation which is a statutory process.  This allows the Council to effectively carry out a task which is in the public interest.

Who we will share your information with

The data you provide will be shared with the relevant internal departments or external contractors analysing the findings on our behalf.  The online consultation is hosted by Survey Monkey, for details of their Privacy Statement, please visit their website:

How long do we keep your records?

Anonymised survey data will be kept for the purposes of analysing the data for an indeterminate amount of time (until we no longer need it), at which point it will be securely destroyed.
