BDS monitors planning applications submitted and decisions issued for minerals, asphalt plants & related schemes. We include both new schemes and extensions to existing sites. These include sand and gravel pits, limestone, hardstone and sandstone quarries, coal, clay and other minerals. Mineral related developments are also included, such as aggregate bagging plants and asphalt plants.(Aggregates recycling plants are included in a similar report on the waste sector.)

Access to information is provided in two ways. Firstly, an online portal provides details of all schemes plus the ability to search, filter and download information into Excel for further analysis. Secondly, a monthly report is also produced in PDF. The PDF format is useful as a published document for distribution or ease of reference. Access to historical data and reports can also be made available.

Information is obtained from personal and telephone contact with local authorities and monitoring web sites. The original application is included in the report together with the consent (if approved).

Mineral companies subscribe to the report to monitor competitor activity. Suppliers of equipment, products and services use the report to gain new sales leads. As well as the site address, details include an office address, contact name, email address and telephone number.

Separate reports are available covering both Great Britain and Ireland.
