I suspect that an FOI request would return the name that's in the NSG. 
That is, Fairfield Road. It's unlikely that the FOI officer will do 
anything other than look up the street on the computer, and take the 
answer they are given.

I'm not sure whether that's acceptable for ODbL or not. There's a lot of 
data that can be released under FOI that can't be reused because it 
contains proprietary information. This may come under that category.
