FOI Request Maps of Landfill and Schools

Request 101001636479

I would appreciate if you could provide the following:

1. Location of waste sites (landfill, recycling, etc) and whether they process hazardous waste in the Council in 1991. If 1991 is not available, data from 1990 or 1992 could also meet the purpose. I hope to connect the waste sites information with the neighborhood boundary maps (in ArcGIS format) I have, so the waste sites will need to have accurate location information: it can be detailed road address (so I can pin down the location in Google Map), or British National Grid, or Easting & Northing coordinates. Information on the capacity of those waste sites are preferred but not essential.
2. Catchment boundaries of secondary schools in the Council in 2001 and 2011. My goal is to construct a neighborhood (defined as a datazone in Census) level measure of secondary school performance, and I currently have performance measures by secondary school. Therefore, the ideal data for the catchment boundaries will be an ArcGIS shapefile delineating the catchment zones of each secondary school in the Council with the corresponding names of the schools. If such data are unavailable, catchment maps by school that can be imported into ArcGIS can also meet my purpose.

Question 1

Before 1994 landfills were not licensed and Moray Council did not come into being until 1996. Hence, the Moray Council holds no formal records of landfills from 1991. Information is based on, published mapping, aerial photographs, anecdotal reports and other documentary research collected as part of the Council’s statutory duty under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (Contaminated Land). The information on historical local authority landfills is likely to be incomplete and little information is available on private landfills.
