All data searches are now handled by the Lincolnshire Environmental Records Centre (LERC). They can provide data on statutory and non-statutory designated sites, habitats and species within Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. LERC currently has access to information on 4 million species records, 2000 non-statutory sites, over 300 statutory sites and 10,000 ha of habitat information relating to Greater Lincolnshire.

Data searches include information provided by (but not limited to):
- Lincolnshire Bat Group
- Lincolnshire Bird Club
- Lincolnshire Naturalists' Union
- Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

Commercial data searches are charged at £100 for the first hour and £35 for each subsequent half hour (+ VAT). The majority of data searches take less than one hour to complete. This charge is waived for searches from members of the public, for research purposes and other non-commercial uses.
The Nature Partnership has been working with its Partners to improve its service and has produced an online form designed to meet the needs of 90% of data search requests. This form can be used to request a standard data search around a 6-figure or 100m grid reference with either a 2km or 5km buffer. Results include information on:
- Non-statutory sites
- Statutory sites
- Priority habitats
- Protected, priority species and invasive species
Data searches requested using this form are charged at £100 + VAT and are usually provided with same day dispatch. If you require a more complex search - for instance a buffer around a site or a different selection of species - fill out a custom data search request form to receive a quote.
