What additional data could the Building Department collect for Planning's benefit?

All development goes through the Building Department to get a building permit, inspection, etc. Therefore, this department collects alot of development related data.

One statistic that they collect, which is useful for some of Planning's purposes, is the type and number of dwelling units constructed.

Does anyone have any ideas of what else our Building Department could collect on Planning's behalf?
