In response to your Freedom of Information Request No.7658 I can advise that Brentwood Borough Council have received two applications, submitted under the prior approval/notification procedure relating to changes of use of buildings from office to residential without the need for planning consent, since 31st May, 2013. One of these was refused and for the other one prior approval was not required. The total number of units of housing is eight but we do not have the information available to respond to your question (4).
