Data Request Form

ERICNE Data Request Form

We often receive requests for data from the general public, conservation organisations, voluntary recorders and naturalist groups as well as academic researchers.

In most of these cases, unless a significant amount of time is involved, we will endeavour to provide the data free of charge. However, please do see our Charging Policy for more details.

To request data from us,  you can download the form and email it to eric.ne@twmuseums.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Charging policy

A fee of £80 per hour plus VAT is levied to commercial users to cover the administrative costs of performing a data request and maintaining the database. There is no charge for the data.

A standard data request covers a specified search area from a supplied central grid reference, comprising of a map of statutory and non-statutory sites and a list of protected and notable species records. If ERIC North East does not hold any data for the requested area, the fee will be waived
