Royal Mail Post Box Types & Collection Plate Types

John Gow made this Freedom of Information request to Royal Mail Group Limited

The request was successful.

From: John Gow

22 May 2009

Dear Sir or Madam,

You recently supplied an up to date 2009 list of post box locations
in the UK
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/po....
I was hoping you could expand on this a little. Could you also
supply information about box type, i.e. A,B or C pillar box, lamp
box, wall box etc. Also, could you supply the codes for each box's
kind of collection plate e.g CP1-R, SCP1-R, CP7-Y etc etc and
supplement the existing location list?

Yours faithfully,

John Gow
