Product Details

Groundsure Insight delivers detailed and accurate information using extensive and unique environmental and geological datasets as well as providing you with the highest resolution historic mapping available.

Groundsure’s Historic Land Use Database (HLUD) is the most accurate and reliable information available on the market. Our HLUD is derived from historic Ordnance Survey mapping dating back to the 1840s, scanned in at over 500dpi – setting a new industry standard.

This sharper imagery means you can see the information more clearly and benefit from greater confidence in your opinion. Each map is manually assessed by an in-house GIS consultant before we deliver it. The Full pack includes National Grid, County Series and Town Plans at scales: 1:10,000, 1:10,560, 1:2,500, 1:1,250, 1:1056 and 1:500.

The Geo Insight report provides all the geo-environmental data required to make informed decisions and identify potential ground stability problems that may affect ground investigation, foundation design or possible remediation options.

What does it cover?

  • Historical Land Use information
  • Environmental Permits, Incidents and Registers
  • Hydrology and Hydrogeology data including abstractions, source protection zones (SPZ), now with SPZ within confined aquifers
  • Basic flood data including EA Flood Zones, RoFRaS and groundwater
  • Detailed flood mapping – Previously only available in the Flood Insight product
  • Groundsure’s unique historical surface and underground workings database
  • Groundsure’s mining and mineral extraction database

Underground Utilities map

Utility Essentials

​This report gives visibility of the 5 key services – Gas, Electric, Water, Sewage and BT Openreach.

Product Details

The Essentials report is collated and delivered in 5 working days* and is ideal for remote sites where only the main utility providers are likely to be present or projects where the aim is merely to check the availability of the main utilities (water/sewer, gas, electric and BT) e.g. in the planning stages of a new development.

*Due to the extensive nature of some searches, the number of utilities searched, and the response timescales imposed by some utility suppliers, it can happen that not all responses are received within the relevant timeframe. When this does occur, your report will be delivered with all available content as requested, and a final report will be delivered as soon as the outstanding information has been received.
