Over 340 Residential Developments Granted Permission

In the first 6 months of 2015 we have seen over 340 Multi-unit Residential Construction Developments granted planning permission, in addition to this almost 500 new applications have been submitted for Multi-unit Residential Construction projects.  A further 180 Residential Construction projects have commenced construction during the same period.  Despite the positive sentiment in the volume of new applications being submitted to local authorities, the 142 week time lag from application to commencement, as outlined in the Building Information Index, highlights one of the issues that the housing sector is currently grappling with.
