Data Searches

Please note that from the 1st April 2024 our fees have increased by around 5%. Find out more here.

We are the only organisation in Berkshire and Oxfordshire providing a comprehensive environmental information hub.

TVERC holds high quality environmental data and can provide an environmental search for any area in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. See TVERC Data for further information.

The majority of searches will incur a charge; please see our charging policy for further detail. As a non-profit organisation, TVERC uses our income to sustain the services we provide to the local recording community, who in turn share their data with us, so we can share it with you!

Our standard format is a biodiversity report, supplied as a PDF document, with species data as an Excel spreadsheet, and sites & habitats as EITHER a PDF map OR GIS layers. However we can tailor our service to suit your needs, in which case we would provide you with a quote for a 'bespoke' search.

We usually complete searches within 3 working days, although you can request a faster service for an additional charge.

If your enquiry crosses the TVERC boundary, you may need to contact one of our neighbouring Records Centres. The ALERC website allows you to check which LERC you need to contact and provides contact details.

Acess to Data Policy

TVERC will provide access to the information that it holds. Access will be controlled in accordance with policies on ownership, confidentiality, charging, data exchange agreements with suppliers, and priority levels imposed by management.
