Despite the incredible abilities of search engines, we know it can sometimes be difficult to access useful reports and background information. Another problem is that when websites are changed or reorganised what were once easily accessible documents can become deeply hidden. An example of this was the creation of the .GOV website, which led to much useful information on Natural England's website being archived or even lost.
This section of our website collects together some of the reports and other documents we have found useful. As far as we are aware, all of the documents are in the public domain and can be freely shared, mostly under the Open Gov Licence for freedom of information. If there are any documents in this section that should not be shared in this way, please let us know.
