Note:
Not all earthquake-related consents can be identified.

The number of issued consents is not the same measure as the number of approved buildings. For example, a consent approving five new dwellings will count as one residential consent and will also increase the count of new dwellings by five.

Relocatable units are new dwellings for temporarily housing-displaced residents.

Residential and non-residential consent values both include new work, alterations, and additions. Residential consents include domestic outbuildings.

Non-building construction includes swimming pools, bridges, reservoirs, and retaining walls. Work that requires a resource consent but not a building consent is excluded.

Seismic strengthening work is excluded.

Values include goods and services tax. Consents below $5,000 are excluded.

Consents that are solely for demolitions are excluded from our statistics. This is because some demolitions may proceed without a building consent.
