Dear FOI (Freedom of Information),

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately it is not feasible to visit the council offices in Merthyr as I am based in Glasgow.
I would be grateful if you break down the costs involved so that I may understand the cost of £68 per map, especially for an electronic copy. I am happy to submit this as a separate freedom of information request if you need me to, just let me know.

Yours sincerely,

Natalie Muir
