This page provides a link to a range of organisations’ guidance and advice in respect of recording and survey work during the COVID-19 restrictions. We will be continually updating this page with links as they are received.

The NBN is collating the information and is not able to offer guidance and advice. In all cases reference should be made to the latest Government information which can be updated at any time.
