ABS - Building Approvals (GCCSA) 2013-2014

This dataset presents details of buildings works approved in Australia for the 2013-2014 financial year. The data has been aggregated and presented by Greater Capital City Statistical Areas (GCCSA) 2011 boundaries.

Statistics of building work approved are compiled from: permits issued by local government authorities and other principal certifying authorities; contracts let or day labour work authorised by commonwealth, state, semi-government and local government authorities; and major building approvals in areas not subject to normal administrative approval e.g. building on remote mine sites.

The scope of the collection comprises the following: construction of new buildings; alterations and additions to existing buildings; approved non-structural renovation and refurbishment work; and approved installation of integral building fixtures. The statistics include all approved residential building valued at $10,000 or more and all approved non-residential building valued at $50,000 or more.
