CT's Oct. homebuilding permits up

Connecticut's construction of houses, condos and apartments gained steam in October, but remain well off last year's pace, new data shows.

There were 507 permits issued in 104 sampled communities last month vs. 462 issued in Oct. 2016, the state Department of Economic and community Development said Tuesday, citing the latest Census Bureau permit tally.

Through the first 10 months of this year, 3,198 were issued vs. 3,696 issued the same period last year, DECD data shows. Single-family dwellings and buildings with five or more living units continue to dominate the state home-building scene.

Norwalk leads all sampled communities, with 238 housing permits granted in Oct., and 426 issued through the first 10 months of 2017.
