Lancashire have already released their data privately to rowmaps, so
would hopefully be amenable to providing it for use in OSM if someone
asked. Cumbria do have the GIS data, but might it might be more of a
problem getting them to release it judging by
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/prow_data_14 . Since it might
take some time, I've put in an FOI/EIR request at
and we'll see what happens.

BTW: To help keep track of where we are with data availability and
licensing from different councils, I've set up
http://robert.mathmos.net/osm/prow/progress/open-data . If you know of
any significant stuff that needs adding / updating there, please let
me know.

Best wishes,
