FOI14557(2) – Request for information
Thank you for your email of 21 August 2015 , requesting information from Ordnance Survey in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act FOIA 2000:
I'm afraid my request as to why the mystery boundary change was made on LA records has not been satisfactorily explained.
The LA states that the boundary change can only have been made on a change in the mapping of the property - given to it by OS.
Please therefore provide all maps (including and updates of physical features) given to the LA by OS.
The dates might assist you...
NB. Please refer to the second part of my request... You will know that FOIA relates to ALL file data held by an organisation.
Including maps present and past.
I can confirm that Ordnance Survey does hold the information you have requested.
I am pleased to provide you with the attached information (Zip file) with regards to your request of the LandLine data (following the dates highlighted) for 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2993, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and current large scale data.
Under our duty to provide advice and assistance as stipulated in Section 16 of the FOIA, we can also provide you with the following explanation which may assist you in this matter.
The houses first started to appear in OS mapping in 1998 with xx. In 2006 all of the houses are on (apart from xx) but xx is called xx. In 2008 xx name changes to xx.
The Landline extracts chart the changes in this area between 1995 and 2008. The 2011 LandLine (the last deposit of LandLine data) is the same as 2008. There is no other historic data between 2011 and the present day.
The property xx (to the west of xx) was surveyed by the field on May 2015 according to the dates on the line work.
I hope the above is of use to you.
