Background

BDS monitors and reports on planning applications and consents for food stores and non food stores in the UK and Ireland. Information is gathered from daily checks with planning authorities and is published on the BDS online portal and in PDF reports. Separate food and non food store update reports monitor proposals from consent, through construction to store opening.

This information is available on an annual subscription, while separate databases include historical information and allow subscribers to sort the data by company, location or other search criteria.

Additionally, reports identifying consented but as yet unimplemented retail schemes for both the food and non-food sectors are regularly published. These provide opportunities for retailers and developers to add to their portfolios as well as providing knowledge of schemes that may affect their existing competitive position.

For details of all of the reports please use the appropriate links. If these do not meet your requirements, then we can undertake bespoke work for you as required.
