Apartments boost new building consents
Jan 9, 2014
A boost in new apartment consents led to an 11 per cent rise in the number of new dwellings consented in November 2013, Statistics New Zealand said today.
However, excluding apartments, the seasonally adjusted number of new houses fell 0.5 per cent.
In unadjusted terms, 1775 new houses and 492 apartments were consented in November last year.
