Subject Access Request – East Riding Councillors

Over the past year or so East Riding residents have witnessed a catalogue of failures by the Councillors at East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) that demonstrates that they have collectively, and to varying degrees, all failed to adhere to the most fundamental of the Nolan Principles:

“To challenge poor behaviour wherever it occurs.”

None of these failures should have happened if all Councillors had challenged the poor behaviour of Officers and themselves. Evidence demonstrates this was not the case.

Clean Hands

During my time as an Independent ERYC Councillor between 2016 and 2019, I raised, and paper trailed my concerns with regards both Children Services and Planning. Sadly my fellow Councillors at the time failed to take on board the alarm bells I was raising and at best attempted to shoot the messenger. As direct consequence children were significantly let down and residents must accept houses imposed on them that should never have been built.

I will leave the ERYC disastrous incompetence with Employees Pension Fund for another day. I do question why the Pension Committee did not take the appropriate action in early February 2020 to safe guide the Pension Fund. Surely the warning bells could not have been any louder?

Data Protection

I duly raised the alarm on the inside regards Children Services and Planning. I personally took the required and obvious action prior to the Stock Market crash based on knowledge learnt from sitting on the ERYC Pension Committee. Yet all I have witnessed over the past year or so from ERYC Councillors is a blame game instead of accepting responsibility and taking appropriate action.

As a direct result of the recently leaked email, I now have similar concerns about Data Protection at ERYC as I did about Children Services, Planning and the Pension Fund.

All 67 ERYC Councillors (currently 65 with 2 pending elections) are Registered Data Controllers. This means they have full responsibility for Data held which means they must comply with the DPA and GDPR.

Given the recent performance of ERYC Councillors, my faith in them with Data Protection is understandably not great.

To ensure that my data is being stored with all Councillors correctly I have exercised my lawful right by submitting a Subject Access Request to them all.
