Initiated apartments in the Brno-city and Brno-country districts
Initiated dapartments are, according to the methodology valid from January 1, 2006, apartments for which has been issued a valid building permit, regardless of whether they were completed in the given year or not. By the end of 2005, an initiated apartment started to be considered as housing whose construction was begun according to the entry in the construction log book.
In 2018, the construction of a total of 1,987 apartments was initiated in the districts of Brno-city and Brno-country, which represents a slight increase compared to the previous year. The number of initiated apartments in the city of Brno has been decreasing since 2015, but in 2018 there was a significant increase in the number of housings to 1163. Compared to 2017, the number of initiated apartments in the district of Brno-country decreased. Nevertheless, it can be stated that the construction of new flats is not sufficient. The decline in construction was recorded between 2010 and 2013. The main problem in the construction of new flats is the outdated zoning plan of the city of Brno. The absence of significant housing construction supports the process of suburbanization, and it makes difficult for existing or potential residents of Brno to make affordable housing. In the same time, this phenomenon makes the price of flats more expensive in the hinterland of Brno.
