BDS monitors planning applications submitted and decisions issued for minerals, asphalt plants & related schemes. It is part of the minerals planning service that also covers sand and gravel pits, limestone, hardstone and sandstone quarries, coal, clay and other minerals. Mineral related developments are also included, such as bagging plants.

The report covers England, Scotland and Wales and can also be made available by individual regions.

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

Asphalt 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 a contact office address and telephone number.

Separate reports are available covering both Northern Ireland and Ireland.
