New homes continue to be completed in record numbers in Auckland, despite the recent COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
The latest figures from Auckland Council show that 1344 Code Compliance Certificates (CCCs) were issued for new dwellings in March.
That was a record for the month of March since the council's published CCC records began in 2013, and almost double the 678 CCCs issued in March 2019. That's even though the most severe COVID-19 lockdown restrictions took effect towards the end of that month.
However there was a dip down to 910 CCCs issued in April as the level 4 restrictions began to bite in earnest, but that was still up by 15% on April last year and was also a record for the month of April.
Code Compliance Certificates are issued when a building is completed and deemed fit for occupation.
The number of new homes being completed in Auckland each year has more than trebled in the last six years, rising from 4027 in the 12 months to March 2014 to 14,528 in the 12 months to March this year.
