I need to use the 'Find Nearby Populated places' service as it returns suburbs that are populated. But the results of the nearby places don't include their postodes, which I need. (/findNearbyPlaceNameJSON?)

The service 'Find nearby postal codes' does return the postcode, however it doesn't let me restrict to only return suburbs of certain cities size at it brings back results I don't want, so to use this service I would need to restrict by cities size, which it doesn't look like I can do with this webservice.

So I could use either, except they are both missing something I need.
It would be easiest to use the nearby places if it could also include the nearby place postcode in the result - is this possible?

the postal code dataset and the gazetteer are not yet fully syncronized. This is the reason for the different output/query available for the postalcode dataset and the gazetteer dataset.

Best Regards

Hi Marc,
Is their any update with the services, where this could now be achievable?
