[Talk-GB] Tagging redevelopment and closed roads

OK, thanks for your help on this. I’ve ended up with a combination that seemed most sensible:

 - the two car parks I have tagged with removed:amenity and removed:parking, because they are gone.
 - Norman Street (and the gyratory roads around the car parks) I have tagged with access=no, but not added any removed tags yet. The roads are only just shut, and I imagine that they won’t be “removed” for a while yet. I will add removed tags later. These roads are going, and never coming back.
 - Oxford Street I have added “motor_vehicle=no” because this is still open to pedestrians, and will be retained when the development has finished.

  Once the new development goes in these can and should probably be deleted.

Worth adding the main advantage of this, is if an armchair mapper comes
along tracing, then it *should* be obvious to them that those items no
longer exist and have been deliberatly removed.
