Request for UPRN and BA references for business premises

The request was successful.

Dear Elmbridge Borough Council,

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please would you provide me with a dataset comprising the UPRN (Unique Property Reference Number) and the BA Reference (Billing Authority Property Reference Code)* relating to all business premises which are currently identified in your local authority's area for rating purposes. As I understand the UPRN is a key component of your Local Land and Property Gazetteer.

I do not want any further information, just a dataset (contained within an Excel spreadsheet, or as a comma separated text file) comprising these two references.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Craggs

Dear Mr Craggs

I refer to your Freedom of Information request and attach herewith the requested information.

The Council operates a presumption of openness in its access to information. It provides much information outside the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as usual” basis. Persons do not need to engage the statutory provisions to access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.

If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with our response, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to Head of Legal Services, Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD.

Should you then remain dissatisfied at the outcome of that process, you are entitled to appeal against the decision by contacting:
The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
Telephone: 0303 123 1113 or 01625 545 745

There is no charge for making an appeal.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Dawn Zagrovic
