Other councils are not unique in their duty to promote and defend public health, the same as Tower Hamlets. Similar control measures have been introduced across London, and the country. Other councils have also been forced to close, then reopen, their parks in response to visitors ignoring government guidance on social distancing – including the London boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth and Hammersmith & Fulham, to name a few.


Data Controller and Purpose

The information you provide will be used by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets’ Public Realm, to process your request. The service is provided jointly with the council’s waste and cleansing contractor “Veolia” under the statutory responsibility the council holds to collect and manage waste within the borough and Tower Hamlets Council is the Data Controller.

We have received your requests which may be accompanied with personal information such as name, address and contact details from your use of our waste collection service and will use this for data processing which will allow us to make improvements.

We process your data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and if you have any concerns the council’s Data Protection Officer can be contacted on DPO@towerhamlets.gov.uk.

Condition for Processing Personal Data

It is necessary for us to process your personal data (name and contact details), under the GDPR as a task carried out in the public interest / for the performance of a contract / for compliance with a legal obligation/with consent], and more personal data (health, personal and household circumstances) as necessary for (substantial public interest reasons / preventative or occupational medicine / public health).

A delay in you providing the information requested may result in a delay in providing appropriate services.

How long do we keep your information?

We will only hold your information for as long as is required by law and to provide you with the necessary services. This is likely to be for seven years after the case is closed. For further details, you can view our Retention Schedule.

We may also anonymise some personal data you provide to us to ensure that you cannot be identified and use this for statistical analysis of data to allow the council to effectively target and plan the provision of services.

Information sharing

Your personal information may be shared with internal departments or with external partners and agencies involved in delivering services on our behalf. As stated above this will include some personal information such as names and contact details if necessary to your request. The council has a duty to protect public funds and may use personal information and data-matching techniques to detect and prevent fraud, and ensure public money is targeted and spent in the most appropriate and cost effective way. Information may be shared with internal services and external bodies like the Audit Commission, Department for Work and Pensions, other local authorities, HM Revenue and Customs, and the Police. This activity is carried out under social protection law.

We have a duty to improve the health of the population we serve. To help with this, we use data and information from a range of sources including hospitals to understand more about the nature and causes of disease and ill-health in the area. This data would normally be anonymised and never used to make decisions on a specific individual or family.

Your rights

You can find out more about your rights on our Data Protection page and how to complain to the Information Commissioner.

Leisure centres that are open have reduced capacity due to social distancing measures in place. Anyone who wishes to use gyms, studio space and pools at the centres, must pre-book a time slot on the Better app or website.

We are holding private citizenship ceremonies for those who have already paid but had their ceremony cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.

Please contact nationalityandcitizenship@towerhamlets.gov.uk with your telephone number if you have further questions.

Private ceremonies can be offered and paid for in urgent circumstances where there is capacity to do so. We would ask that new citizens wait for further guidance from the Home Office before attending a group ceremony.


All Better members are being given borough-wide access to all Better-operated facilities for the foreseeable future.

Members of centres that aren’t re-opening in the initial phase, such as St George’s Leisure Centre, Wapping; Tiller Leisure Centre on the Isle of Dogs; and Whitechapel Sports Centre, can use alternative facilities.

It is important that all stakeholders have an opportunity to fully consider the proposals, ask questions, share their views and raise any concerns they may have.

The intention is to consult with headteachers early in the Summer term. After this, there will be individual consultations for each school (or group of schools) where changes are being proposed. Separate events will be held at the school for staff and parents.

Once this first round of consultation is completed, the resulting proposals will be presented to Cabinet in Autumn 2019 with a recommendation to formally consult. If agreed, the statutory public consultation would commence soon after and would include further events, meetings with the wider community, and a survey.

The results from these consultations would be reported back to Cabinet with final recommendations. Cabinet will make the final decision on the proposals.

You can apply for a new permit up to one month before your old one expires and you can change the start date so that you do not lose any time.


Your paper permit has already been added to the new system as a virtual permit, so you do not need to display it.
