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

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 is available on annual subscription. Historical information can also be made available upon request.

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).

Separate reports are available covering both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
