Whilst I do sometimes think there is too much paranoia about bulk
imports in parts of the UK community, company head offices are
notorious, in my view, for failing to map their branches at the correct
location, often using postcodes. As such, I'd expect a very diligent
attempt to find existing mappings, and that existing addresses which
appear to have been surveyed on the ground should not be changed, but
rather either the mapper notified through a changeset comment, or a map
note added, to point out the discrepancy.
They will get locations wrong, even when using Google Maps on their own
web site store finder pages.
Generally there is a strong presumption that something already on the
map is correct, especially if surveyed on the ground.
Having said that, I'm not aware of any errors on the ones I personally
know, one of which is new to the map.
