Housing growth in BOP ahead of Akld

Busy summer ahead for builders in BOP and North Island

Another sign that construction activity is going gangbusters in the Bay of Plenty in the just released building consent data this morning.

While Auckland saw 1,239 increase in new dwelling consents issued in the year to 30 September 2016 (14% increase), Bay of Plenty had a 50% increase with 829 consents.

Coming into earthworks season now too, provided there's enough resource and materials one can expect a busy summer for builders in Tauranga and surrounds.

It's the opposite story in the South Island, where there's been a drop off in consents issued.
