Area-specific search reports are the most common product requested from Local Record Centres but we are also able to provide more general information for the region as well as custom-made, in-depth desktop surveys. Our reports can include information on species, statutory and non-statutory sites and habitats.
Our charges are dependent on the nature of your business (whether commercial or non-profit), and on the time it takes to serve your request. Our charge rates are lowered for the long-term funding partners who have contributed grant funds to the establishment of the service. We will endeavour to make general biodiversity information freely available to the public and to schools, mainly through the webpages on this site. Please contact us for further information and feel free to send us any comments.
Before we handle your data search we require you to complete a simple form, this form can be downloaded here:data enquiry and release form. Or contact us via email@example.com with any other enquiries regarding data searches.
If your request for biodiversity information is part of a professional survey you may like to consider sharing the data you collect with us. By doing this, you will be making the information available for use by others and will contribute to overall knowledge of biodiversity.
Some of the information we hold is regarded as sensitive by the Countryside Council of Wales in that it relates to the specific locations of, for example, breeding sites. CCW publish a list of sensitive features and guidance on how these records should be managed which can be downloaded from the link in the column at the left of this page. All records relating to species on this list are highlighted in a WWBIC species list generated by a data search.
Below is an example of a typical report, two maps, one showing species and sites, one showing priority habitats and a written report.
