Land ownership property boundaries

kieran foster made this Environmental Information Regulations request to Severn Trent Plc
You only have a right in law to access information about the environment from this authority


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 refused by Severn Trent Plc.

Dear Severn Trent Plc,

Could you please provide me with:

1) a GIS compatible file (GeoJson/Shapefile or .KML/.KMZ) of your land boundaries/land that you own or manage.

2) If also held, a GIS compatible file (GeoJson/Shapefile or .KML/.KMZ) of roads/access tracks on land that you own or manage.

I would like to request this information under Environmental Information regulations, and ln light of the upper tribunal decision in GIA/0979/2011 that water companies are a public authority for the purposes of EIR

For the sake of clarity and simplicity, my primary interest is in expanses of land owned, eg. catchment areas, moorland, forestry, agricultural land, reservoirs and access roads - as such I am happy if you wish to redact buildings or covered reservoirs in urban areas or which you may wish to redact for security reasons

Yours faithfully,

kieran foster

Dear Severn Trent Plc,

Query number 2004240973.

I received the response attached below to my EIR request

This is not simply an adequate request to a formal freedom of information/environmental information request

I hav3 asked for a specific set of data - data which is held by your GIS team. In fact you promote this GIS resource as being an important strategic part fo your business: https://resource.esriuk.com/esri-resourc...

I would like to formally request a review of the response to my EIR request and that you supply me with the data files showin* me the land that is owned by Severn Trent.

To be absolutely clear, we are discussing the land you own, not your service area as indicated in the email response below.

Yours faithfully,

kieran foster

Well done for trying to get information out of STW. Unfortunately they are a law unto themselves. They even used an apprentice to reply to your last request! If you have pushed this further please let us know.
