New figures show that there was an 11.8 per cent increase in building approvals in November, which was the strongest monthly growth since February. Approvals for high-density housing developments increased by 21 per cent in November, for an annual growth rate of six per cent. Tom Kennedy of JP Morgan notes that building approvals data tends to be volatile, but he adds that the latest figures suggest that approvals have begun to stabilise.
