We regularly publish a report showing all known current planning consents for food retail stores. These are outstanding consents for both new stores and extensions to existing stores that are yet to be implemented.

From the BDS database of planned food and non food stores, all local authorities were contacted to identify the latest position of each proposal. Information was also checked with property developers, retail companies and other businesses in the sector.

This information identifies retail stores that will be built shortly and affect the competitive position of other retail companies. Retail stores where development of the scheme has stalled may provide other companies with the opportunity to progress the scheme. Around 250 schemes are included, sorted by region and county.

Information has been sorted alphabetically by county within the ten economic planning regions. It includes England, Scotland and Wales. Details can be made available by region or county if required.

A separate report covering unimplemented consents for food stores has also been published.

The most recent report was published in March 2019. However, we continue to monitor this market and more up to date information can be provided to suit client’s requirements. Please contact BDS for further information.
