Eastleigh TPO listing

Tom Morton made this Freedom of Information request to Eastleigh Borough Council

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

We're waiting for Tom Morton to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Eastleigh Borough Council,

I am a potential developer looking for a map which lists TPO data and tree locations within Eastleigh Borough Council.

There have been some past requests for this data, but the final response has previously been "Our TPO information is in the process of being updated and is therefore
not currently available to be released." However, this last request was over a year ago, and it is completely unacceptable that this information has not been available for over 3 years now.

I have been on several other council websites, and carried out some extensive research and the datasets seem to work for other councils apart from the ones covering Eastleigh Borough Council.

As part of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I'm requesting that this information is made available.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Morton

Etherton, Tom, Eastleigh Borough Council

Dear Tom Etherton.

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate the link, but when I open the page and click on the "Link to data", a blank XML document opens that states "Invalid or missing version parameter", so the data is not readily available from this link. There is another link on the page to "Preview on map" but as this suggests, it is just a preview and doesn't offer any level of detail or accuracy. This is partly because on a zoom level of 10 or above, the roads and map background disappears, making the preview useless.

I'd like to reiterate my request for accurate data to be made available publicly, or for the current link to be updated with correct information.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Morton

Dear Mr Morton,

Thank you for your email and I apologise for the delay in reply.

Our IT department has provided the following response:

You can preview the data from the website, this doesn’t give any detail it is just a quick check to see what the map looks like.

To get any real use out of the data you will need a GIS system, you then load the layer into their GIS using the link INSPIRE WMS Service. This XML file contains the link to our data e.g. https://emaps.eastleigh.gov.uk/inspire/w...

There are a lot of free to use GIS systems that can be download e.g. QGIS.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further enquiries regarding your request.
