The heat map above shows the locations where the greatest number of units are contained in approved office-to-residential prior approval applications. The data is based on an analysis of the units contained prior approval applications received by London boroughs between May 2013 and July 2014.
Croydon, where approved office conversion applications contain in excess of 2,500 units, appears as a red blob to the south of the city centre. Other office conversion hotspots identifiable on the map are Hounslow in the west of London, Harrow in north-west London and Camden and Archway in north London.
