In November last year building approvals increased by 7% which was driven by a rise in apartments and units, which jumped 17.3%.

Bureau of Statistics data showed 17,569 dwellings were approved in total, with apartments and townhouses making up 7,966 of the total.

Dwelling approvals fell in the Northern Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, the ACT, Victoria and South Australia.
