Dear Mansfield District Council,
In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please would you provide me with a dataset comprising the UPRN (Unique Property Reference Number) and the BA Reference (Billing Authority Property Reference Code)* relating to all business premises which are currently identified in your local authority's area for rating purposes. As I understand the UPRN is a key component of your Local Land and Property Gazetteer.
I do not want any further information, just a dataset (contained within an Excel spreadsheet, or as a comma separated text file) comprising these two references.
