The value of building consents issued in Marlborough last month dropped by almost half compared with February last year.

Last month's building consents summary was released yesterday by the Marlborough District Council and it showed a total of 76 consents were approved last month, totalling $8.3 million.

In February 2013, 80 consents valued at a total $15.6m were issued.

Nine new houses and nine housing additions were approved by the council in February 2014.

The value of consents issued to build new houses totalled $4.08m. Additions to already existing houses stood at $518,000.

The single largest consent was a honey processing building, with storage and offices, in Taylor Pass Rd. This consent was valued at $850,000.

Consents included a sleepout, a boatshed, free-standing fireplaces, garages and farm sheds.
