Spain: Housing permits increase in July
The Spanish Board of Architects approved 10,280 new construction permits in July, according to data published by the Ministry of Public Works. The figure was above the 6,673 permits granted in July 2020 and the 8,837 permits granted in June 2021. On an annual basis, permits surged 54.1%, also due to a low base effect, following June’s 23.8% increase.
