Issues with Contacting our Members
An obvious solution to the donations letter issue would be to email all plot holders with the donation details. We are currently unable to do that as the Council are not presently sharing the email addresses of our members with us. We have been told they cannot give us these email addresses because of GDPR regulations. However we do not think this is correct as plot holders give consent to being contacted by us when they sign up for a plot. Even if they didn’t there is a ‘legitimate interest’ clause in GDPR which would permit it. Despite our arguments we still do not have emails for anyone who has taken a plot in the last two years.
The current situation is that the Council signs up members to BHAF but then doesn’t tell us who they are or how to contact them. It’s not a situation that is sustainable and obviously seriously affects how we can operate as plot holders representatives.
