Widening your search area
By default the Direct Enquiries search engine looks for results that are nearest
(in distance) to your original search location.
To begin with, Direct Enquiries searches within 5km of your selected location.
If no matches are found, the system automatically increases the search area in
3km denominations, up to 15km or until a match is found. If a match is still
not found then you can choose to widen the search area by clicking the
‘Increase search area’ link. Alternatively, you could change your search
If no matches are found, increasing the search area widens the results by 15km
at a time, up to a total radius of 105km or until a match is found, e.g. 15km,
30km, 45km. For each 15km denomination you would need to click the ‘Increase
search area’ link.
Please note: You can keep increasing the search area until 30 matches are
returned at which point the ‘Increase search area’ link would no longer be
displayed. In this scenario you must page through the results if you want to
see more than twenty results.
20 results are displayed at a time. To page through the records you must use the
‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ links at the bottom right hand corner of the search
results page. NB: You can also change your search criteria at this point.
