Northside Story continues to play

Conus has reported on this week's building approvals data from the ABS for February: Strong regional building approvals in FNQ again

It was a solid month all round for the various SA3 statistical regions within the Cairns SA4:

In Cairns itself the North continues to dominate with 41 approvals versus 19 in the South.

Within that 31 of the 41 Northside approvals were at Trinity Beach-Smithfield. On the Southside 10 of the 19 were at Edmonton. These are all houses with no additional unit approvals reported.

Among other data reported are the value of residential and non-residential as well as value of residential alterations and additions (including conversions to residential). I presume this relates to work substantial enough to require council approval. Anyway these are the numbers since 2012 for the entire Cairns SA4 area:

Note: Y scale is thousands (000's)
I'm not sure how good this data is or what it means but could be worth a closer look.
