Chart of the week
Statistics NZ publish a monthly series of building consents issued by every New Zealand local authority. The data includes categories for residential dwellings, from which this chart is derived. Note that this chart tracks the number of consents for new dwellings, and does not cover consents only for alterations or improvements to an existing residence. Regional data is also charted here.
There are separate series for the value of consents issued.
