Willoughby leads way for new housing

Majority of new housing in 2015 was created in Willoughby

A whopping 60 per cent of housing created in 2015 was in the Willoughby area.

According to the Township’s building statistics just released on Jan. 12, a total of 1,034 dwelling units were created in Willoughby in 2015.

The second busiest neighbourhood in Langley is Murrayville, with 269 units, or 15 per cent of the total new dwellings. Rural areas was third with 156 dwellings built in 2015, then Aldergrove, Walnut Grove and Brookswood/Fernridge with 52 new dwellings.

In total for 2015, 977 multi-family units were built compared to 643 in 2014. There were less single family homes built in 2015, at 271 homes, compared to 290 homes in 2014.

And there is more housing to come. Permits were issued for 758 dwelling units by the end of December 2015.

For 2015, $13 million in permits were issued for agricultural. Very few building permits were issued for commercial buildings, making this the slowest in five years. Industrial buildings permits spiked in 2014 and have leveled off to a bit above average.
