New record for building activity in Auckland

Published: Mon 25 Feb 2019 10:00 AM
New consenting data shows the Unitary Plan is working by providing housing options in the areas where Aucklanders want to live, with more than 90 per cent of dwellings being consented within Auckland’s existing urban area.
The figures also showed that in the year ending December 2018, 10,637 dwellings were ‘completed’ by having a Code Compliance Certificate (CCC) issued, setting a new record for building activity in a 12-month period on Auckland Council records.
“The Unitary Plan removed much of the regulation around density and since it became operational we’ve seen most of Auckland’s housing growth happening within urban areas.” - Penny Pirrit, Director of Urban Growth and Housing.
