Hotel building permissions were down last year. | A.G.
In 2018, the number of building permissions for homes rose by 36% to 3,266, according to figures from the Balearic College of Architects. This increase and its positive effect on the construction industry continued a trend of recovery that had started in 2013. The college notes, however, that building activity is subject to variables. For example, it hasn't been at the same level on all the islands.
