Consents were issued for more than 13,000 new homes in Auckland in the year to October – the first time that number had been reached since the 1970s, Stats NZ said.

Home permits in Auckland briefly reached a similar high level in the early 1970s, when Auckland’s population was less than half what it is now,” acting construction statistics manager Dave Adair said.

“The number of new homes consented also came close to 13,000 in the June 2004 year.”
