As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatian flat and other forms of housing construction is accelerating further and further of late and is mainly responsible for the growth of issued building permits. As stated in a recent press release, 906 construction permits were issued during the month of June this year in Croatia, which is 17.5 percent more when compared to the same month back in 2021, the Central Bureau of Statistics (DZS/CBS) announced on Tuesday.
According to the types of buildings the permits were issued for, 87.5 percent or 793 permits were issued in June for the construction of actual buildings, and 12.5 percent or 113 for other forms of constriction (including roads, railways, pipelines, bridges, dams, sports fields, etc.).
According to the structure of the building permits issued during the month of June 2022, the construction of 1,390 Croatian flats/apartments, spanning an average area of 97.8 square metres, has been planned, the CBS announced.
Statistics also show that on an annual level, the number of construction permits issued during June 2022 for buildings increased by 24.7 percent, for other constructions it decreased by 16.3 percent, while for Croatian flats/apartments it increased by 19.8 percent.
The amount of building permits issued in June this year estimated the value of the works to stand at 2.65 billion kuna. During the first six months of this year, however, a total of 5,612 building permits were issued, which is 8.7 percent more than back during the same period last year. The value of the works was estimated to stand at a massive 18.93 billion kuna, according to data from the CBS.
