Celestial/nebular research

Request for information – FOI13401

Thank you for your e-mail of 29 July, which we acknowledge, requesting the following information:

1. I was just looking at one of the books that I have on loan from Rothley Library and I have noticed a page about the electrical supply in Rothley which equates to the document that you sent me also there is a detailed map of Rothley which is the sort of map I am looking for concerning Brighton.

2. One of my projects is Nuclear Research of the Celestial/Nebular type and I have enclosed some further documentation about this including Jodrell Bank.

I was wondering if Ordnance Survey has any research documents on the above.

I regret to inform you that Ordnance Survey is unable to help you with your information request, as we do not hold the information you have requested. We detail why this information is not held below:

1. The mapping which you have provided as an attachment to your request concerning Rothley is not Ordnance Survey mapping, therefore we are unable to provide similar mapping of this nature for Brighton. Our previous FOI response (FOI13389) advised where you may obtain Ordnance Survey street level mapping of Brighton, via OS OpenData™.

2. We do not hold research documents in relation to 'Nuclear Research of the Celestial/Nebular type' as Ordnance Survey is the national mapping authority of Great Britain and it is not within our remit to undertake or hold information in relation to this issue. Visit our public task web page for information about our public task.
