Housing pipeline report - Q3 2020 report - Published December 2020
The number of units approved rebounded during the third quarter after the disruption of the national lockdown during the Spring. The number of units approved grew by 21% against the previous three months but was 7% lower than a year ago. The recovery in approvals during the third quarter was led by a rise in private sector approvals, while social sector projects remained weak during the quarter.
Glenigan recorded the approval of 96,191 residential units during the third quarter of 2020. At 86,859 units, housing schemes of ten or more units accounted for 90% of approved units; the remainder being on smaller new build projects including self-build schemes, homes included within non-residential projects, and the conversion of non-residential properties.
