What do we provide?

A standard site-specific data request normally includes:

  • A list of protected and notable species records
  • An interactive pdf map of statutory and non-statutory nature conservation sites

ERIC North East charges an administration fee for data requests in order to cover the costs of reporting, collating and managing the data. For full details please see the ERIC Data Request Form below.
