Data Search Charges

NEYEDC makes a charge to commercial users to cover the administrative costs of extracting the data we provide. A proportion of this income is used to support and facilitate voluntary recording in the North and East Yorkshire area. The remaining costs associated with our data collection/collation/management activities are covered by our agreements with the Local Planning Authorities (LPAs).

A number of LPAs in North and East Yorkshire have declined to support NEYEDC and have directed us to recover all of our costs from the private sector. Consequently we charge a Local Authority Surcharge for data searches in the following Local Planning Authority areas: Richmondshire District Council, Scarborough Borough Council and Hull City Council

The table below summarises the amounts payable for common data search types. For details on the pricing of other services please see the ‘Charging Rates for Commercial Data Searches’ document, available from the Our Policies page.
