Information supplied by the Highways Agency and local authorities for use in the national Street Gazetteer

Mark Goodge made this Freedom of Information request to Improvement and Development Agency for local government

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

Improvement and Development Agency for local government did not have the information requested.

Dear Improvement and Development Agency for local government,

Please could you provide me with a copy of the most recent data supplied to you by the Highways Agency, and all local authorities which act as the highways authority for their locality, for use in compiling the national Street Gazetteer.

For avoidance of doubt, I am not requesting any data supplied to you by Ordnance Survey, or a copy of the NSG itself. All I'm requesting is the data supplied to you by the various highway authorities who contribute to the NSG.

For reference, I have previously requested a copy of the data supplied to the NSG by the Highways Agency directly from them, and they were happy to provide it[1]. Therefore, I presume that there are no licensing or copyright issues with obtaining the equivalent data supplied by local authorities.

I do not require the data in any particular format; I am happy to take it exactly as supplied to you by the Highways Agency and local authorities.

Dear Mark

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of

with such requests within the spirit of the legislation.

We have considered your request for data supplied to the LGA by the
Highways Agency in compiling the National Street Gazetteer, but
unfortunately this information is not supplied to the LGA. The data may
have been supplied to Local Government Information House now operating as

data. They can be contacted via their website at [1]www.geoplace.co.uk.

Please redact all personal data from this thread on the
