Environmental Constraints

Environmental Constraints

  • Product Overview

    Environmental constraints data is made up of the locations and classifications of areas deemed to be of natural importance by Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Countryside Council for Wales. These designated areas have restrictions that may limit the extent and type of property development that can take place and knowing the type and location of these designated areas is important during the planning process.

Solutions

  • I have a large site which requires specific digital data - can I speak to an Account Manager about t

    Yes. Please feel free contact the Customer Services Team on 0844 844 9952 who will transfer you to your Account Manager or if you have their details already, please feel free to contact your Account Manager directly.

  • I have a question about the digital data I have ordered.

    You may wish to refer to the Envirocheck Export User Guide.  If this does not answer your query, please contact the Customer Services Team on 0844 844 9952.

  • The digital data I ordered does not cover the area I expected. Why is this?

    Digital data is supplied for the area within your exact site boundaries and not for a wider buffered area. If you require data for a wider area, please ensure that this whole area is incorporated into the site which is drawn. This is particularly important if you are considering a linear route.
