I have been trying to think of a way round this for quite some time. A
Council usually has two notifications to handle, i.e. The Council and the
Electoral Registration Officer. The Council cannot add the Councillors
casework etc. to its notification (the reason escapes me).
However, I do not see why a Council could not have a third group
notification for all its Councillors. The Data Controller would be The
Councillors of x Council - Address x Council. Purpose - Casework etc. etc.
Other "groups" seem to be allowed to do this, e.g. Business Security Groups
- using CCTV etc. the individual shops are covered by the notification.
Also - thinking aloud now - if Councillors have to individually notify -
what about School Governors (or any other members of bodies performing a
similar role), where they do work for the organisation and do work for the
'customers' of the organisation - usually handling complaints?
It would be nice to think that the collective knowledge on this list could
solve this one once and for all!
