More About Building Approvals

Building approvals statistics include the number and value of new building work approved by administrative bodies in the collection period. They relate to the construction of new residential buildings, renovations and additions valued at $10,000 or more and the construction of non-residential buildings valued at $50,000 or more. Approvals of engineering works for roads, bridges or railways are not included in these statistics.
