Dear Suffolk County Council,

In response to a previous FOI/EIR request last year, you supplied me with a copy of the electronic version of your Definitive Statements of Public Rights of Way in the form of an Excel spreadsheet (2017.06.22_SuffolkPROW_Definitive_Statements.xls), together with permission to re-use the information under the terms of the Open Government Licence v3. [1]

Assuming that there have been some changes in the mean time, could I please have an updated version of this file, and the same permission to re-use it? The purposes of the re-use would be to help improve the mapping of Rights of Way in OpenStreetMap, and to make the information available to others in an open format.

Perhaps you would also consider making this file available on your website so it would be available to anyone without them needing to ask.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Whittaker
