Auckland Council’s Research and Evaluation Unit (RIMU) has released its Monthly Housing Update for August, bringing
together the latest significant Auckland housing-related statistics.
In the year ending June 2019, a record 14,032 dwellings were consented and 57% of these were for apartments, town houses
and other attached types of homes.
Penny Pirrit, Auckland Council’s Director of Urban Growth and Housing says it’s pleasing to see that attached dwellings
are making up a large proportion of new dwelling consents.
“The diversity of Auckland’s population means that a range of different housing types are needed. We’re a region of
first-home buyers, growing and blended families, aging couples and long-term flatters. The needs of Aucklanders are
changing and our housing stock needs to provide options for everyone.”
