Construction levels in Marlborough remain flat, latest building consent figures show.

The Marlborough District Council issued 70 building consents last month, worth nearly $7.6 million.

While the value is up slightly from the 80 consents issued in September, valued at just over $6m, it is down on the 89 issued in October last year, worth $8.5m.

There are 17 new houses to be built, valued at $4.9m, at an average of $288,000 each. Last month, 13 consents for new homes were issued, valued at $3.5m, or $269,000 each, while 18 new houses were consented last October, valued at $5.3m - an average of $294,000.

Winery improvements and expansions continue to breath some life into the Marlborough construction industry. Three commercial consents valued at $1.3m were issued last month, including a new barrel hall at Villa Maria Estate valued at $550,000.
