Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre


Commercial Users

WSBRC is hosted by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust which is a not-for-profit charity. WSBRC reserves the right to charge users a fee which covers a proportion of the time spent collating and managing data as well as the costs attributable to the time required to administrate and undertake an enquiry. These charges represent an important resource and are vital if WSBRC is to have long-term viability. In the unusual instance that no records are held for your search area our charges will be waived.

As an example a 1km standard data search of sites and species data around a central grid reference (as described previously) will cost £170 + VAT; a 2km search will cost £240 + VAT (prices as at 8th April 2013).

Please fill in an Information Request Form with the details of your enquiry for a quote based on your individual requirements.

Service Level Agreements

Should you use WSBRC on a regular basis, we recommend entering into a Service Level Agreement and paying a fixed fee per year that covers all your requirements and allows us to plan our workload. If you wish to discuss this, please contact us.


A detailed survey report is normally provided free of charge to a landowner after their land has been surveyed by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust Wildlife Sites Project. If a landowner or their agent requests a second copy of the survey or if a new landowner requests previous existing survey data of their land then this will be provided at a reasonable cost.

To supply all relevant biodiversity data to a landowner for entry into an Agri-Environment Scheme (including maps of notified sites, and priority BAP habitats and species both within the enquirers’ land holding and on adjacent land) then charges will apply as for other commercial bodies.

Non-commercial Users

Information to non-commercial, bona fide, enquirers is normally supplied free of charge. In these instances charges are only made, and these are kept to a minimum, when significant amounts of staff time and/or resources are required.

Please try to be as precise about what you require as you can, but do contact us for help if you’re not sure. Once you know what you require please fill in and submit our Information Request Form.
