I agree with Chris that FOI requests should be considered as a back-up  
method for information that is not forthcoming without it.  
Incidentally I got answers from my local council (after having two  
emails ignored for a month) by including the phrase 'I understand that  
I could ask for this information under FOI which creates more work for  
you, so in this instance I am not asking under the FOI' , I got the  
answers I needed within 2 hours!

Also, do be aware that the information in a FOI request is probably  
not of use to OSM because it will still be covered by Crown (c).
