Wrong maps address, postcode, road name, not being corrected RRS feed

  • Question

  • I submitted over a month ago a collection of very wrong map information and it still hasn't updated. It's really significant because anyone using the postcode gets taken up a mountain on really inhospitable roads to the wrong place.

    Is there some way to get this sorted? Can I get registered to have the authority to make the updated data live?

    It's a missing address, road name misspelled and postcode very wrong, so no-one has a chance finding anything.

    Honeydale, BLAENCUFFIN road, Brynithel, Abertillery, NP13 2AR

    SO 21820 01250
    SO218012
    X (east) 321820, Y (north) 201250
    Lat 51.704518, Long -3.1327615

  • Hi Simonmmm,

    I have verified this postal code with Royal Mail. https://www.royalmail.com/find-a-postcode and the name you are using does not match their record.  Please work with the Royal Mail to update if their answer is incorrect or do get your correct address from them. They have:

    Honeydale Caravan, Blaencuffin Road, Brynithel, ABERTILLERY, Wales, UK NP13 2AR

    And show that location as:

    Note also that if I try your Lat/Lon I get the following:

    111 Mount Pleasant Estate, Brynithel, Blaenau Gwent, NP13 2HW

    Which is a considerable distance from the expected location as given by Royal Mail

    So please do confirm you address with Royal Mail and when they update, we will also update from their data.  We have to rely on the official service for ground truth so we will need the source to update before we can update.

    Sincerely,

    IoTGirl
