The cubic volume covered by permits granted for residential buildings decreased by 18.1 per cent in April. The cubic volume covered by permits granted for other than residential buildings, in turn, increased by 80.6 per cent from one year ago. The high growth is explained by the fact that building permits for several large building projects were granted in April.
