Malton Norton Improvement Scheme Consultation privacy notice

This Privacy Notice is designed to help you understand how and why the North Yorkshire County Council Highways and WSP, process your personal data. This notice should be read in conjunction with the Council’s Corporate Privacy Notice.

Who are we?

North Yorkshire County Council is a ‘Data Controller’ as defined by Article 4(7) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Malton Norton Scheme Consultation is a public consultation exercise being carried out with Malton and Norton residents on the Infrastructure and Connectivity Improvements Scheme and in particular the Internal Junction and Traffic Signal Study. The Study looked at different options to improve traffic, queuing and congestion, and modelled the impact on the transport network. NYCC has used the outputs to develop a current proposed suite of interventions in Malton and Norton centre to ensure better management of traffic, queueing and congestion, with the overall aim of reducing delays. The interventions consist of technology changes, in addition to modifications to traffic signal control and infrastructure changes. A public consultation exercise is being carried out before the planned scheme can be progressed further. As part of this consultation exercise, an online survey has been created to capture the views of residents, and input into scheme development.

The Council has appointed Veritau Ltd to be its Data Protection Officer. Their contact details are:
