• Wellington has seen an upward trend in building activity since mid-2013 with alterations and additions the most common building consent granted.

• Canterbury continues to have the highest rents in the country, with nearly 15% annual growth.

The New Zealand Housing and Construction Quarterly publication can be downloaded from MBIE’s Building and Housing information website at

Accompanying the release of the New Zealand Housing and Construction Quarterly are a new set of online rental data tables. These can be downloaded at

Future editions of the New Zealand Housing and Construction Quarterly will be released in September and December this year.
