Commercial Enquiries

 

Please note that we are providing all our commercial outputs via Aderyn (the online Welsh LERC database) from 1st December 2019.

 

Data Enquiry and Release Form (DERF)

To request data from SEWBReC, please complete, sign and return a Data Enquiry and Release Form (DERF). This form must be completed, signed and returned for EVERY enquiry you submit. No data will be released without the relevant DERF.

This document is available to download below; please send completed forms to info@sewbrec.org.uk.

Please see our guidelines if you have any issues completing the DERF.

Turnaround time

Point searches (i.e. circular search around grid reference) and Bat And Roof-nesting Bird searches are a set price and results will be delivered via Aderyn within five working days of receipt of a completed DERF.

For polygon searches (i.e. a buffer applied to a site boundary) we will provide a quote to you within three working days of receipt of a completed DERF. Once the quote is accepted, we will provide your report within five working days.

During our busy periods, it may therefore take a total of 8 working days from submission to completion of a polygon search. Please make allowances for this when planning your enquiry.

Fast Track Enquiries

If you have a very urgent enquiry, please get in touch with SEWBReC to discuss current turnaround times. A fast track fee may be chargeable during busy periods.
