Who's building in your region?

Get planning leads live on the net

Published:  12 July, 2010

UK: An online pay-as-you-go service can help merchants to quickly search thousands of the latest planning applications and approvals for contract leads.

itriggers allows merchants to gain first-hand information on building projects throughout the UK.

From housing developments, to shops, office blocks, hospitals and home extensions, each week the service adds a variety of leads that can help merchants find out what is going on in their region.

All the visitor has to do is search for the types of projects they are interested in or the area in which they are looking to work in for £2.50 for each lead.

Visitors can view matching results and purchase the ones they want.

"itriggers is a real boon at a time when construction is feeling the pinch," said company managing director Jerry Gosney.

"We believe this is the first time that applications for all building projects, from the very big to the very small, will have been gathered together in such an easily searchable database.

"Planning applications represent a decision to invest and itriggers provides details on companies and individuals ready to spend on everything from kitchens to car parks early in the project process, when decisions on suppliers and contractors have yet to be made."
