Residential dwellings consented

Source:

Statistics New Zealand Building consent data

Frequency:

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.
