[Talk-GB] PRoW changes

One thing that springs to mind is that these organisations receive orders
as they are statutory consultees who may wish to object to the order. It
isn't just to keep these organisations up to date. I suspect a request by
osm to be notified of changes just to keep might get the response that
orders are already available to the public.

It seems what we're really asking for is an equivalent of councils'
obligation to send Ordnance Survey notification of confirmed changes rather
than their obligation to notify statutory consultees throughout the DMMO
