Building Consents Issued: December 2012
Embargoed until 10:45am  –  30 January 2013
Correction

1 February 2013

After this release was published on 30 January 2013, we made a correction to the figures for earthquake-related building consents in Canterbury in the 'Commentary' section of this release and on the webpage Earthquake-related building consents in Canterbury.

The total value of earthquake-related consents has not changed, but the split between the values of residential and non-residential consents was inaccurate. Also the number of new dwellings was calculated incorrectly.

The main changes were:

  • the number of consents for new dwellings was reduced by 82 (from 116)
  • the value of residential consents was reduced by $22 million (from $42 million)
  • the value of non-residential consents was increased by $23 million (from $2 million).

We regret any inconvenience these errors caused.
