Dear Islington Borough Council,

I am looking to obtain details on the location of council owned housing estates in the London Borough of Islington. Ideally i would prefer a map that shows clearly the defined area of each estate which would probably be something held by a GIS team on ArcView or MapInfo type products. I have searched the internet to try and find this information, however, i have only managed to find maps showing details of estates for Lambeth (a pdf detailing all estates boroughwide) and Hackney (which are included in individual ward profiles).

I would be very grateful if you could supply a map of this information naming the estates.

I am requesting this information to aid with social and geographical research on deprivation and the incidence of crime in social/high density housing areas.

Yours faithfully,

Mr I Agar

Dear Islington Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Islington Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Details on locations of Housing Estates'.

I have not even received acknowledgement of this request, which i also submitted to over a dozen other London boroughs, several of those responded with exactly what i requested within a week.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
