Request for local listings dataset

Received: 20 August 2021

Dear Sir / Madam,

Please can you supply me with a copy of your current spatial dataset for your conservation area boundaries under Open Government Licence (OGL), ideally in SHP, KML, GeoPackage or some comparable spatial data format? This is for the purposes of updating the national conservation areas dataset published earlier this year, which incorporated local data from the Historic England INSPIRE OGL conservation areas dataset. I've since realised that parts of this latter dataset are now quite out of date, especially in London, so I'm looking to update your component with current data. This will be openly published and specifically shared with the MHCLG Digital Land team, GLA and the Colouring London project, all of whom are interested in accessing an up to date London-wide consolidation. The OS have confirmed (see dropdown under Planning) that this dataset is suitable for OGL publication under their presumption to publish guidance.

Separately, I'd also like to request a copy of your local listings dataset, ideally in CSV format with X,Y National Grid coordinate locations (if available) or postcodes attached to each entry for geolocation purposes. If you already maintain a local spatial dataset (in either point or polygon format) for local listings, I'd really appreciate a copy of this. Again, I'd appreciate it if this data could be supplied under Open Government Licence, to support incorporation into a new consolidated national open dataset. A more detailed version of this request is contained in the first attached file, and OS confirmation of the suitability of OGL publication for both point and polygon versions in the second attached file.
