Map 1A: Number of New House Building Approvals by SLA, July-December 2011, ASGC
Map 1B shows how this SLA is now represented by the SA3 of Armadale and its eight SA2s under the ASGS, providing a greater level of geographic detail.
Map 1B: Number of New House Building Approvals by SA2, July-December 2011, ASGS
Under the ASGC, the SLA of Armadale (C) had 708 new houses approved from July to December 2011. Under the new ASGS structure, the SA3 of Armadale also has 708 new house building approvals.
