Our Data

Data Quality is our key strength and distinguishes us from councils and other personal search suppliers. It is crucial in supporting your own risk management practices.

The accuracy of our data, and quality check methodology, means our claims history is impeccable.

We have invested over £10 million in our datasets and technology.


Our Methodology



We meticulously search through every local newspaper, public notice register and committee meeting document for all council areas in England & Wales to garner relevant data.


We capture data at every stage, from initial proposals, public consultations, and committee hearings, to advertisement. By the time any action is authorised, we have a comprehensive backstory in our unrivalled database.


We update this information daily, in order to maintain full accuracy. This also allows us to generate national geographical data faster than any individual local authority.


We operate a highly effective Triple Quality Check method for our data capture.
All data is verified and put through stringent quality assurance checks to guarantee the highest quality of information.
