Details on locations of Housing Estates

Mr I Agar made this Freedom of Information request to Islington Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

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:
