- In the June quarter 2010, there was a fall in the number of residential dwellings commenced (-5.9%) but increases in the number of dwellings under construction (7.1%) and completed (5.7%).
- The increased number of dwelling commencements compared to the June quarter 2009 may be reflective of the building industry catching up with demand, following a 'saturation' of the market in 2009 when falling interest rates and increased government subsidies resulted in record numbers of building approvals.
