This report describes the BGS Property Subsidence Assessment data product. The methods used to create the component datasets have been critically assessed and its fitness for purpose determined by specialists in BGS. The BGS Property Subsidence Assessment data product looks specifically at the geological factors that influence the susceptibility to Shrink-Swell hazard and combines these with the level of susceptibility due to proximity to trees and the characteristics of a building to provide a more complete understanding of all factors involved. This document outlines the background to why the dataset was created, its potential uses and gives a brief description of the data layers. Technical information regarding the GIS and how the data was created is described and advice is provided on using the dataset.
