Hastings’ home-building boom is nearing a 10-year high but with builders facing unprecedented demand the industry is looking at how it can keep up.
Latest figures from Statistics New Zealand revealed 65 new dwellings were consented in Hawke’s Bay in October – 23 more than the same month last year.
The value of that construction rose $12m on October 2017, to $29m.
The majority of new houses consented were in Hastings, with 42 consents approved in the city, the largest monthly number there over the past 12 months.
