Great! There doesn't look to be all that much of Sutton missing so it would
be good to plan how to do the rest after that mapping binge.

Jolly good, we also need to put in the Sutton boundary, which I suppose
will be a day of wiggling around the rough area looking for the signposts.
I've still not worked out a good way of finding out the ward boundaries,
the council won't give them to me because they're all derived from OS data.
Short of asking every resident which ward they're in, or just copying them,
I don't know what to do. It seems a bit ridiculous that we'd actually cause
a problem by getting the council's data on electoral boundaries, which
happens to be drawn on OS maps!
