Leeds City Council & Google Mapping

Google Maps….. I noticed several inaccuracies on the google map of our area and in the process of correcting them went off on a tangent wondering who was responsible for the maintenance of lowerable bollard  at the junction of Rockville Terrace and Harper Lane, as it now will not stay locked in its upright position and I have seen several unknown cars trying to use our ‘back street ‘as a cut through….It led me to a pdf of a page from  The London Gazette, 7th of June 1995..

Here’s the extract.
