Sounds fine in principle.

1. Are these orders placed in a central database? My understanding was 
each local authority only passed on the data (to OS) once added to the 
definitive map. My LA publishes PPOs & DMMOs on their website. If all 
LAs do the same could the information be collated from these?

2. What does OSMUK intended to do with the documents once it's obtained it?

3. If there is one, do all LAs issue under the same license?
