Annual Residential Growth Monitoring Report

We monitor housing growth in the city to identify development trends.

Palmerston North City Council has been collecting and publishing annual residential growth data since 2004.

This data helps us identify development trends, including where and what types of new houses are being constructed.

Typical information includes:

  • whether development is greenfield, infill or rural
  • whether new dwellings are townhouses, apartments, flats or sleepouts
  • land bank availability
  • house sizes
