The DBRC partnership

The Devon Biodiversity Records Centre (DBRC) was established to gather, manage and disseminate data about Devon's Wildlife. DBRC takes a partnership approach based upon shared objectives and offers mutual benefits to those involved. It aims to establish the kind of network of knowledge and intelligence which Devon needs if it is to safeguard and promote the interests of its rich natural terrestrial and marine environment over the next millennium.

Partnership within DBRC is manifested through the DBRC forum. This provides funding partners, recording groups and other interested parties with an opportunity for discussion and information sharing about issues central to the operation of the records centre. The Executive Group oversees the strategic direction of DBRC, as well as approving and monitoring its annual work programme and budgets. The Executive group includes representatives from Devon County Council, Devon Wildlife Trust and The Environment Agency as well as representatives from ecological consultancies, the recording community, local ecologists and local authorities.

DBRC currently holds Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to provide data and services to:

Dartmoor National Park Authority;Devon County Council;Devon Wildlife Trust;Environment Agency; East Devon District Council, Exeter City Council, Exmoor National Park Authority;Mid Devon District Council;North Devon District Council;Plymouth City Council;South Hams District council;Teignbridge District Council;Torbay council;Torridge District Council;South West Water;West Devon Borough Council.
