Who we are
We founded Planning Pipe in the belief that Planning information about new construction
projects in the UK should be more accessible and more affordable.
So we designed a FREE, live search engine and FREE alerting service to the UK Planning system – reporting on new UK construction projects submitted for planning approval usually within 24 hours of original local authority publication.
If you’re interested in new UK construction projects, you can set up a free Project Alert right now. You can monitor and check exactly what’s coming up in your market – and find out about projects you might not be aware of. And if you need contact and full new construction project details, you can subscribe very cost-effectively without the need for a long term commitment.
Planning Pipe was founded by Paul Graham, business information specialist and, for seven years, Managing Director of established UK construction information provider, Glenigan. Drawing on the IT expertise of fellow directors Lance Mason and Daniel Layne, we have developed unique and innovative processes to help you track and monitor those Planning applications of interest to you.
We use a huge number of automated and manual processes to capture, enhance and filter nearly half a million pieces of information every week from over 450 local planning authorities.
…which means that Planning Pipe provides the most comprehensive and most accessible search and alerting service to new UK Planning applications…
However we won’t be able to provide you with perfect information – and if you’re a construction contractor or supplier to the construction industry – that means we won’t promise you perfect construction sales leads. In fact we think you should know the things that we don’t do…as well as those we can do.
What we don’t do
Our information is primarily sourced from online Planning sources – so if some project
information is not available, missing or incorrect at the Planning application stage,
we won’t be able to bring it to you. But everything that is in Planning we track
relentlessly…. so you can be informed FIRST about what’s relevant to you.
We also don’t currently track new projects after the Planning application submission stage. That means that if you just can’t manage without lots of project and contact details at the later stages of a commercial construction project, then we might not be the best service for you.
And we will make mistakes ourselves. This will be because, in a small number of cases, we incorrectly categorise what a project is or where it is. Problems with our source data providers are harder to fix but we are constantly working on our own processes to improve the information we provide to you.
However by providing a flexible and free Project Alert service , a 100% Money-Back-Guarantee and comprehensive FAQs we hope you know what you can expect about the Planning Pipe information and products and how we can help your business – before you make any financial commitment.
What we do
Planning Pipe has developed highly sophisticated automated and manual data collection
processes to continually capture and report on over half a million Planning applications
through the UK Planning process.
Our unique data processing systems filter, categorise and publish the details of any UK Planning activity that involves construction work. All Planning applications involving new construction projects are available on planningpipe.co.uk usually within 24 hours of their original Planning authority publication.
For every new construction project, you should expect to receive all available information at the Planning application stage which will typically comprise:
2 UK Regions from £21.95 per month and full National access from £42.95 with no long-term subscription commitment.
