"The annual total for residential consents was the highest since May 2008 so things are definitely picking up. The other thing is that while Canterbury and Auckland annual consent issuances are lifting, it's sort of levelling off in the rest of the country. Only six of the 16 regions we saw reported an increase in annual issuance in the 12 months to July compared to the previous 12 months."
...in July, led by continued strong house-building demand in Auckland and Canterbury," Christina Leung, an economist at ASB Bank, said in a note. "Beyond the monthly volatility, dwelling consent issuance in these two regions remains on a clear upward trend. We continue to expect strong house-building demand in Auckland and Canterbury will drive construction growth over the next couple of years."
"The trend for new dwellings has more than doubled since March 2011, but is still 26 percent below the series peak in January 2004" business indicators manager Neil Kelly said
"The continued increase in non-residential building consents in July is another positive development," said the ASB's Leung. "The increase in July was led by stronger demand for new office buildings and retail outlets. With businesses showing increasing optimism towards investment, we expect this will flow through to a continued improvement in commercial building demand over the coming year."
