Data Searches

CBDC provides a ‘desk study’ enquiry service for ecological consultants, developers, countryside managers and other commercial users, this includes species, site and habitat data. We also provide Standard Data Searches for species, sites and habitats. Learn more here.

If your needs aren’t covered by our standard searches, please specify your requirements in an email via the form on our Contact Page or contact Moustafa, our Data Officer, directly.

Data Request Form and Guidance Notes

Download and complete our Data Request form (Word document) and email the completed form to our Data Officer. To ensure you get the information you require, please read our Guidance Notes as well as 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.

3. This decision was not taken lightly & was done in conjunction with partners & stakeholders. With the health of our community uppermost in our minds we feel closing is the safest option. We look forward to reopening with our programme of exhibitions & events as soon as possible
