Planning Portal Market Insight Report

What is the Planning Market Insight Report? 

The Planning Portal is in the unique position of receiving around 90 per cent of all planning applications submitted to Local Planning Authorities across England and Wales. This means that each month, we are in possession of a unique dataset at the point of submission, giving us unrivalled access to proposed development trends and allowing early insight into what kind of projects are being applied for, and where. 

Since May 2020, we have collated this information into a clear and usable report which highlights the trends of the previous month. The Planning Market Insight Report is the earliest source of planning market data available, and each issue features key high-level statistics as well as deeper analysis of a specific sector or topic. 

We’ve developed this report to help businesses to identify valuable opportunities and to understand trends in planning and building application. Request the free Planning Market Insight Report and this invaluable information will land straight in your inbox each month. 

Free market-leading insight

We know that obtaining market data to inform business planning has never been more critical than it is today, and we are therefore delighted to be able to release this data publicly and comprehensively. 

We have an exclusive insight into proposed development statistics and formulating this into our Planning Market Insight Report allows us to help businesses recognise prospects and strategically plan for the future.  

Benefitting from the Planning Portal’s exclusive access to the majority of planning proposals and schemes, the report provides businesses with an opportunity to strategise at the earliest stages within the development planning lifecycle.
