incorrect 'suburb' in reverse nominatim search

I am seeing some strange results when running a search for addresses in Stafford (UK)

Example

lat="52.8186007" lon="-2.1179502"
returns  :

<road>Marston Road</road>
<suburb>Salcombe Avenue</suburb>
<town>Stafford</town>
<county>Staffordshire</county>
<state_district>West Midlands</state_district>
<state>England</state>
<postcode>ST16 3BT</postcode>
<country>United Kingdom</country>
<country_code>gb</country_code>

'Salcombe Avenue' is a minor residential street approx 2km to the SE.
(52.795,-2.0818)

Much of east Stafford is designated as part of this 'suburb' 

What area does the OSM 'suburb' tag cover  - in this case it seem to have been associated with a 'way' (OSM ref : 8095766 changeset 35344 created in 2007)

Thanks for the information. I will forward this on to the development team. Nominatim is very low priority at the moment behind several other high priority projects, so answers and fixes will take some time.

Thanks for the acknowledgement.

How often is the data  for  Nominatim updated from OSM ?

I'm currently changing the 'suburb' tags on the OSM system - when can we expect to see the effect ?

Thanks again
