Norfolk distributor road

Request for information – FOI13404

Thank you for your e-mail of 12 August 2013, requesting the following information from Ordnance Survey:

Please provide all correspondence, notes of dialogue, assurances and communication between Ordnance Survey and Norfolk County Council relating to the inclusion of the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR) as a 'planned' road in some Ordnance Survey data and maps.

For information the NDR is marked from going from Postwick on the A47 (East of Norwich) to the A1067 at Hellesden (North West of Norwich).

Ordnance Survey does hold one document from Norfolk County Council in relation to the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR) which we have attached to this response (xxxxxx – DOCUMENT – FOI13404).

However, under our duty to provide advice and assistance (Section 16 of the FOIA) please be advised that this document relates to the NDR Consultation, and is not correspondence relating to the inclusion of the NDR as a 'planned' road in Ordnance Survey data.

Currently, Ordnance Survey does not show the NDR 'planned' route in any of our products.

As all the requested information has been provided, we have determined that in all the circumstances of this case the Public interest consideration (section 17 FOIA) is not applicable in this instance.
