The table below features data from the Planning Permit Activity government website. The numbers are for the past financial year and reveal the quarter by quarter number of permits granted for NET NEW DWELLINGS – ie not houses replacing houses, but the increase in dwellings per application. These are also not building permits and the vast majority of these new dwellings would not as yet have been granted their building rights.

We’ve listed neighbouring councils and those that Plan Melbourne has now designated as belonging to the same group – ie Bayside, Stonnington, Boroondara and Glen Eira.


PS: We’ve made an error. The Boroondara total should be 1077 and the Port Phillip one should be 2049! Apologies.
