Other Data Sources
CBDC does not hold complete copies of all datasets relating to Cumbria, particularly formal recording and monitoring schemes. Some of these datasets are available from the NBN Gateway. CBDC does not currently search the NBN as part of its data searches. To improve its data services CBDC is working with local and national schemes to incorporate their records into the CBDC database.
For some research projects and major developments it will be appropriate to contact such organisations separately. If you search the NBN Gateway please note that not all data providers give permission to use their records for research or commercial purposes.
