Dear Newham Borough Council,
I understand that Newham council maintains a database of fly-tipping reports from members of the public, as well as data on dumps found by council staff. I am led to understand that this includes location data as well as date and time and nature of the incident and any follow-up action taken. Could you please provide all the data you have in this database as a Comma Separated Value file if possible?
I may be able to read other data formats, in which case please advice which ones you would be able to provide the data in.
