This privacy policy sets out how Lewis & Co Planning uses and protects any information that you give Lewis & Co Planning when you use this website or provide other recorded information.

Lewis & Co Planning is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

Lewis & Co Planning may change this policy by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from June 2018.

What We Collect

We may collect the following information:

  • Name and job title
  • Contact information including email address
  • Demographic information such as postcode, preferences and interests
  • Information provided by you on the on-line Contact Form or by any other means (e.g. details given to us at the time of your first enquiry) sufficient for us to perform our appointed role. This will be kept in project files (digital and actual) and reasonable security protocols will apply in the office and elsewhere.

What We Do With The Information We Gather

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

  • Internal record keeping.
  • We may use the information to improve our services.
  • Sometimes projects are put forward for Awards at which time some data has to be passed to the relevant Authority. This would not be done without your agreement
  • We like to maintain contact with our clients, consultants and suppliers as we believe that our business is also relational. In that event there may be occasions after the end of a project when we would still like to contact you.  If this ever becomes bothersome, then we will of course respect your position and we can remove your data from our records within a reasonable time frame, notwithstanding our statutory obligations.


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
