European Commission adopts adequacy decision for UK data protection

The European Commission has adopted an adequacy decision for the UK under the General Data Protection Regulation. Personal data can now flow freely from the EU to the UK because it benefits from an equivalent level of protection to that guaranteed under EU law.

 The decision includes a “sunset clause” - apparently for the first time - meaning that it will automatically expire 4 years after its entry into force. After that period, the adequacy findings may be renewed if the UK continues to ensure an adequate level of data protection.

    Technical review of planning appeal procedures: consultation

    The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is consulting until 13 December 2012 on proposals intended to improve planning appeal procedures in England. 

    DCLG is considering changes to secondary legislation and guidance to bring into effect:

    • earlier submission and notification of appeal statements;  
    • agreeing ‘Common Ground’ upfront;
    • starting hearings and inquiries sooner;
    • introducing an expedited ‘Commercial Appeals Service’;
    • exploring opportunities for aligning other planning-related appeal processes – so that the number of Statutory Instruments is reduced; and
    • issuing one guide to planning appeal procedures.

    DCLG adds that the Planning Inspectorate is also taking steps to improve its online appeal process to speed up access to information, and may consider reviewing the appeal procedure determination criteria and its bespoke timetable service.

    Responses to Technical review of planning appeal procedures: Consultation are requested by 13 December 2012.

      National Youth Volunteering Service

      On 10 January, the Government launched its Respect agenda, which builds on its drive to tackle anti-social behaviour. One aspect of the Respect Action Plan of interest to the voluntary sector is the specific commitment to develop a national youth volunteering service. The Plan also contains the wider intention to "expand the role of sport, constructive activities and volunteering as positive routes to nurture a culture of respect amongst young people, particularly those from deprived backgrounds".

      The Respect Action Plan can be found at the link below.
