Figures from the Majorca College of Quantity Surveyors show that there were building licences for 2,772 homes last year. These represented a 42% increase, with there having been an almost 60% increase for apartments and 23% for houses.The college's technical secretary, Mateu Moyá, said on Thursday that these figures are way down on what they were in 2007. Prior to the financial crisis, there were some 10,000 licences annually. He added that it wouldn't be desirable to return to those figures: "they are not sustainable".
