Notes for Commercial Data Searches

  • Commercial Data Enquiries have a minimum charge; see the Commercial Data Search Charges page for more detail.
  • The Calculator shows the cost for individual elements of a search inclusive of a 0.5km SITE BUFFER.
  • Each individual site is treated as a separate enquiry, and will be charged accordingly.
  • Central sites which are larger than 1.0km² in area may incur additional charges.
  • Final charges will be assessed and agreed by BRERC once we have a map of the search area,
    and we reserve the right to vary charges for any given enquiry.
  • Further information on Commercial Data Search charges is available on the Commercial Data Search Charges page.
