New building permissions increase reaching 8,900 units in January, 20.89% more than in the same month of 2021, when the figure was 7,362 visas, according to data published this week by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda and consulted by Europa Press.
On the other hand, the January data represents a decrease compared to the December record, thus maintaining the path of falls in recent months, although it represents the best start to the year since 2019, when 9,306 new construction management visas were granted.
New building permissions for January are divided between 2,054 for single-family homes, 6,843 for blocks and three for other buildings, which are neither single-family homes nor in blocks, according to Mitma statistics.
The statistics also show that the average area per dwelling was 193.9 m2 in the case of single-family dwellings. That size loses 3.68 m2 compared to the average area of the visas of December 2021, when new building permissions were granted for single-family homes with an area of 197.6 m2. It is also less than the 194.7 m2 of the average area approved for this type of home in January 2021.
