Information for Local Authorities and other organisations

Local authorities wishing to obtain data are encouraged to sign a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with us. This provides a cost effective way of obtaining data from us on a regular basis, and allows data provision to be tailored to the recipient. Data provided via an SLA typically covers the information included in the East of England Standard Minimum Service guidelines for records centres as a minimum, but additional support and information can be provided according to organisational requirements.

For information on Essex Local Wildilfe Sites (LoWS) please visit our LoWS finder page. Full Local Wildlife Site citations are also freely available online to our data partners, just register as a user and contact us to request access.

We are currently developing new tools and datasets to help organisations to get the most out of the data they receive. We can also offer training and workshops to planners tailored to individual requirements.

Please contact us if you would like to find out more about Service Level Agreements, bespoke datasets or training opportunities.
