Access to Evidence

This catalogue provides access to evidence used by Natural England. It shows how we work and the information we use to reach the decisions we make and inform the advice we give. This includes details about the studies we, and our founding organisations commissioned, as well as site-specific information eg National Nature Reserve visitor leaflets.

Other Natural England publications, such as guidance, consultations, forms, and corporate reports, as well as maps and geographic data, are available from GOV.UK.
