This contains data on businesses in the area of a property. The information is collected by the local data company. In order to access it you need to call the liquid block in a similar fashion to geo features;

    {% local_business_data_block, max_distance : 50000, place_of_origin : property, branch_scoped : boolean %}
      {% for local_business_datum in local_business_data %}
      {% endfor %}

The parameter “place_of_origin” is a required field and can be any of property, branch, site_content_chunk or location.

max_distance represents the maximum distance from the place of origin that the businesses can be, in metres. The default is 5000m.

setting branch_scoped to true will return local data that a branch has edited. If it is not set then ctesius will return the raw data from the local data company.
