The Hills Shire

Building approvals

The value of building approvals in The Hills Shire was $2,094m in the 2016-17 Feb FYTD financial year.

This dataset shows the total assessed value of building approvals for construction in The Hills Shire by financial year in millions of dollars. The dataset is updated monthly to include the current financial year to date, and includes residential and non-residential building approvals separately. The percentage of the state total is shown.

Building approvals for an area can be highly variable over time, particularly in the non-residential sector. Construction may take several years from the date of approval. A high rate of building approvals can indicate a growth area with a construction-led economy. A low rate of building approvals may indicate a settled area with established infrastructure, or an area with little growth. Note that this dataset is not adjusted for inflation.

PLEASE NOTE: The data presented on this page is based on the previous boundary and has not been adjusted to align with the new LGA boundary that came into effect on 12th May 2016. Work to align the data to the new boundary is currently underway.
