5. Lawful basis for processing data

The lawful basis for processing your personal data is the performance of a public task, and is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation as specified by the following legislation:

  • Council Tax (Alteration of Lists and Appeals) (England) Regulations 2009
  • Council Tax (Demand Notices) (England) Regulations 2010
  • Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970
  • Council Tax Reduction Schemes (Detection of Fraud and Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2013
  • Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992
  • Local Government Finance Act 1992 and 2012

We are allowed to process personal and sensitive data for the reasons of substantial public interest where it is necessary for us to fulfil our legal obligations and regulatory requirements. For processing special category data in relation to health and religion information, this is necessary to perform our obligations under social protection law for the purpose of assessing eligibility for a council tax discount or exemption.
