Building licences for housing in Spain register best figures since 2012

The number of building permits granted for the construction of housing in Spain climbed by 28% from January to August this year, amounting to 31,612, which is the best data recorded for this period since 2012, according to Spain´s Ministry of Development.

The total number of building licences authorised for new builds and renovations in the first eight months of the year was 49,613, representing a year-on-year increase of 21.6%.

Most of the permits were used to build apartment blocks with an average size of 112 square metres, while permits for the construction of new detached villas grew by 20.6%. The average size of the individual family homes was around 200 square metres.

Since the Spanish Ministry of Development began producing these statistics in the early nineties, the number of building licences reached their all-time monthly high in September 2006, surpassing 126,000.
