Data Searches

CBDC provides a site ‘desk study’ enquiry service for species, habitats and sites data for ecological consultants, developers, countryside managers and other commercial users.

CBDC provides Standard Data Searches for species, sites and habitats. Read more about Standard Searches. If your needs are not covered by our standard search then please specify your requirements in an email with the form or contact our Data Officer.

Data Request Form and Guidance Notes

Download and complete our Data Request form and email the completed form to our Data Officer. To ensure you get the information you require please read our guidance notes and read our terms and conditions.

We endeavour to provide data requested within 10 days of receipt of the confirmation for the work to go ahead.

Data search results will usually need interpretation by an ecologist and be used to direct and supplement further survey work. The Cumbria Biodiversity Evidence Base provides contextual information on Cumbria’s species and habitats.
