Decline In Dwelling Consents Slows

Building Consents Issued: January 2001

There were 1,335 new dwelling units authorised in January 2001, according to Statistics New Zealand. This continues a downward trend in monthly totals which began in August 1999. However, results for the last three months suggest that the rate of decline is slowing.

In January 2001, over one-third, or 504, of the new dwelling units authorised were in the Auckland region. This compares with 176 in the Wellington region, 170 in the Canterbury region and 133 in the Waikato region.

In January 2001, the value of non-residential building consents was $191.0 million. This follows consent values of $270.2 million issued in November 2000 and $214.6 million issued in December 2000.
