Answered By:

The Planning Decisions Unit does not, as a matter of course, collect the information requested in the first part of your question, but all reports on applications referred to me are available on the GLA website, and contain details of the number of units involved, and whether planning permission was granted.

Decisions about tenure are dealt with by the local planning authority through S106 agreements which are normally finalised after planning permission has been agreed. This information is not available to me.
