BMERC offers three types of Data Searches
  • Commercial - for consultants, solicitors, local authorities, landowners and developers seeking information for development or commercial management of land, e.g. for planning applications, agri-environment schemes etc. There is normally a charge for these searches.
  • Whole Parish Search - for Parish Councils for Parish Planning purposes only.
  • Non-commercial - for members of the public, volunteer wildlife recorders, landowners looking to manage their land for nature conservation, students and other researchers. There is usually no charge for these searches.
