Mapping option strengthens existing offering, pinpointing live planning applications across GB

BDS have added a new mapping feature to their extremely successful online planning portal that helps companies, via planning application information, remain at the forefront of change within the construction and waste industries.

The mapping option, added to the BDS Online Planning Portal in 2024, is helping to strengthen the existing offering that includes features such as searching, filtering, and tracking of applications, and monthly reports.


Daily, BDS gather planning information from across Great Britain, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland, and identify and report on planning applications across a range of industry sectors, including minerals, asphalt plants and related schemes; concrete, cementitious and mortar schemes; and waste-management schemes.

In 2024, BDS can now offer a BDS planning portal annual subscription that includes a three-tier approach:

  • Search: 365-day access to identify applications via keywords, dates, companies, regions, and application status.

  • Report: 12 monthly reports that detail planning application changes, including new applications and decisions within the last 30 days.

  • Mapping: the pinpointing of any live planning application on a map of Great Britain.

Existing subscribers to the BDS planning service include companies who are interested in industry changes or competitor activity, suppliers of equipment, products, and services, and clients who are seeking new sales leads.

Anyone interested in obtaining planning information to support their business or wishing to expand their existing subscription to include the new mapping feature or additional planning sectors should email: [email protected], or visit the BDS website ( for more information.
