BDS monitors planning applications submitted and decisions issued for food stores. We include both new schemes and extensions to retail floorspace at existing stores.

In a typical month, over 50 new applications or consents will be picked up.

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.

The service covers England, Scotland and Wales and can also be made available by individual regions. The report is available on annual subscription. Historical information can also be made available upon request.

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

A separate service covers retail non food stores providing details of planning applications and consents in recent years.

Reports are also available covering for both Northern Ireland & Ireland. Sister reports cover planning developments for non food retail schemes.
