New residential dwelling consent data continues to be patchy with numbers hovering at between about 1900 and just over 2000 consents a month in New Zealand.

But overall, the residential building sector is showing a strong recovery.

In the year to September, 24,102 new housing consents were granted by territorial authorities, well up on last year's 19,775, giving an indication of a revival.

Activity is particularly busy in Christchurch where New Zealand's biggest residential rebuild is under way and where Fletcher expects to finish repairs by April.

Statistics NZ has this morning released the latest building consent data for September, showing numbers rose slightly to 778 residential consents issued in September, up on August's 753 consents but down on July's 876.

"The trend for new dwellings was previously at its highest level since August 2007. While it's now easing, the trend is still about 10 percent higher than at the same time last year," said Statistics NZ business indicators manager Neil Kelly.

The regions that consented the most new dwellings were Canterbury, followed by Auckland then Wellington.

Almost $1.3 billion of building work was consented in September, with $778 million of residential work and $484 million of non-residential work, Statistics NZ said.

About 116,000 Auckland households face a rates increase of more than 10 per cent under a rating formula released by Mayor Len Brown yesterday.

The mayor is proposing an overall rates increase of 2.5 per cent next year, but other factors result in many households receiving rates above and below this figure.

The factors include big swings in values between residential and business properties and plans by Mr Brown for a general charge and business rates.

The figure of 116,000 household facing double-digit rates increases includes some households who have not fully adjusted to a new single rating system for the Super City after three years.

The latest rates hike follows a Herald investigation in September, which showed 57,000 Auckland households had rates increases of 10 per cent in each of the past three years.
