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.
Also note that the issuing of a building consent does not necessarily mean the project will be built. Some won't. New Zealand building consents usually require the project to start within 24 months, or the consent expires.
