Statistics New Zealand Building consent data

In the year ended December 2015, a total of 9251 new residential dwelling units were authorised in Auckland, a considerable increase (21%) on the previous year (7632) but still 24 per cent below the 2002 record (12,182). Keywords: Consents.

Annually

Availability

Building consent data for Auckland is freely available on Statistics New Zealand’s Infoshare website, and was revised slightly in March 2015. Detailed data at sub-regional level is available on request from Auckland Council’s Research and Evaluation Unit.

Note

This data is for new dwellings consented, for calendar years. A single building consent may allow for the building of more than one dwelling, while some buildings consented to are not ever constructed. Demolitions are excluded from this data.

Relevance

Ensuring there is an adequate supply of dwellings in Auckland will facilitate future growth and minimise the negative issues that arise from constrained housing supplies (overcrowding, poor quality housing).

Analysis

 In the year ended December 2016, a total of 10,026 new residential dwelling units were authorised in Auckland, an increase of 8.4% on the previous year (9251). In 2016, as was the case in 2015, slightly over half (56%) of dwellings consented were stand-alone houses.
