23rd May 2010 – Image 9

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.

Please note, the imagery you have requested is subject to crown copyright. Therefore you may not reproduce, distribute or publish it without Ordnance Survey’s express permission.
