I certainly didn't mean to come on heavy, just a friendly "Hi, this has
been happening - do you have guidelines for your staff? If so, could you
please share them with us"

This thread shows the number of opinions on how to map service roads.

I've just been having a conversation with someone who thought that named
streets in an industrial estate should be service roads as they wouldn't
usually be used by the general public. That's a discussion for a separate
thread though!

On the subject of mapping driveways - do people only map up to the front
fence (especially in suburban areas), or all the way to the garage / house
ie everything visible on aerial imagery?
