Earthquake-related building consents in Canterbury

We are no longer updating this page.
If you are still using these statistics, please contact
building.consents@stats.govt.nz.

This table summarises building consents issued in the Canterbury region that were identified (primarily by the issuing authorities) as being related to the Darfield and Christchurch earthquake sequence. The table is updated monthly.

The sequence began on 4 September 2010, with the most notable earthquake occurring on 22 February 2011.

Not all earthquake-related consents are identified by the issuing authorities, so these statistics are incomplete.

Please note, we are not currently producing statistics for building consents related to the Kaikōura earthquake of 14 November 2016.

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.
