Dear Admin Support,
Thank you for your letter.
Using the same numbered format I have further queries.
2. I expand the question as it appears to have been misunderstood. How many of this Board's elected Members have their riparian drains maintained by the Board? That is, those drains maintained by Beverley & North Holderness IDB running through their landholding upon which they pay a drainage rate either as landowner or tenant?
3. I expand this question. How many metres of riparian drains for each Member is maintained by Beverley & North Holderness Board? I do not require measurement to be linked to name, members may be numbered.
4. Does the operate a digital rating system which can be used through Geographical Information System software? This information can be quickly extrapolated and I request this response be reconsidered.
5. I repeat the question as I believe it highly unlikely the Board does not have information from which this calculation can be made.

Yours sincerely,

mary hartley
