UK postcode data for May 2016

I’ve uploaded the latest UK postcode data to my website. Well, nearly all of it. Northern Irish postcodes are still from 2008 since the nice folk at NISRA still release their data under a restrictive license. I assumed at some point they would come into line with the rest of the UK and provide the postcode data with a liberal license, but it doesn’t seem to be happening. Since the data I have is now very old (from a time when the data was released with a liberal license), I am considering removing it from the site. Let me know if you find it useful and I’ll keep it online. And maybe send a polite request to NISRA to open up their data…
