(as I may have said before) I think it's explained by the KFC and Little 
Castle (pub) being built after Enterprise Way was built, whereas the 
other businesses started to be built before it was complete.

Interestingly, Google have updated their POIs since May (maybe a Google 
contributor reads this list...). 
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.2433483,-1.3312846,16.5z looks now 
mostly correct if you compare it to 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/53.24411/-1.33530 .  Back in May, 
most of the POIs were clustered around what is now labelled as "Markham 
Vale Environment Centre", which interestingly if you believe 
has a different postcode altogether of S44 5HY.
