How we use your information
The Council uses your personal information in order to determine requests for alterations to property owned by the Council or its associated ground. The request will be from either the current tenant or a mutual owner.
The information you provide will be used for the following purposes:
- To determine if the request is acceptable to Aberdeen City Council.
- To determine any conditions that will apply in the provision of the consent.
- To determine any costs involved in the granting of the consent and the apportionment of any costs.
- To make any relevant enquiries into current ownership of grounds where necessary.
How long we keep your information for
We will keep your information for as long as the property exists and remains in council ownership.
You have rights in relation to your data, including the right to ask for a copy of it. See more information about all the rights you have, how they work in practice, as well as the contact details for the Council’s Data Protection Officer. You also have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office. They are the body responsible for masking sure organisations like the Council handle your data properly.

If, in the course of undertaking this task, we process special category data about health which is relevant to the repair being requested, we understand our legal basis for doing so as being necessary for reasons of substantial public.
