Guidelines for the Completion of the Data Enquiry and Release Form (DERF)

 

Tips on completing a DERF:

Contact and administration details: Name, Position, Organisation, Contact Address, Email Address, and Telephone Number must be completed. Please also supply an invoicing postal and/or email address if different from your contact details, and a purchase order number if applicable. Please note that we cannot invoice third parties.

Information Request: Location of Search – please provide both a grid reference and site name (this is important as it will be included in the report). Ideally please also state the reason for request and intended use of information (optional).

Data Required: We price point searches (i.e. a circular buffer around a central grid reference) and polygon searches (i.e. a buffer applied to a site boundary) in different ways. You will need to choose from the following packages:

* Polygon searches are not available for Package A.

** Protected and Priority Species, Other Species of Conservation Concern, Locally Important Species, Invasive & Non-Native Species (see table below for inventory of conservation lists used in data searches).

***Custom searches are not currently deliverable via Aderyn. The cost of a custom search is likely to be higher than the set packages.

 

You can also select a "bat bolt on" or "single species bolt on" from the second table on page 1. Please specify the buffer size you would like.

Up to 6km for bolt on point searches will be a set price £50 plus VAT. Polygon searches and larger buffers may vary in price.
