Data licence charges

Where the data is required in GIS format for a large geographic area (search areas greater than a 10km square or 1000ha, or a 5km buffer around a site), a data licence can be provided. The charge for a data licence is based on the time taken to extract the data, plus a contribution towards the annual costs of collating and managing the TVERC database.

The data licence will be granted for one calendar year, after which the data should be deleted (unless a new data licence is agreed)

The datasets provided will be the same as those provided to our funding partners and be updated on the same schedule. Bespoke datasets will incur an additional charge.

Standard Rate charges

For areas smaller than a county, the following charges will apply. The total charge will be the sum of the amounts for each administrative boundary which fall within the search areas. Unless that is smaller than the minimum charge for that dataset, in which case the minimum charge will apply.
