Amichai may be the first settlement in years given government approval, in planning and permits, but it is not the first new settlement or new construction. 

More than a hundred outposts deemed “illegal” or “unauthorized,” even by the Israeli government, have been constructed in the past two decades, including some that surround the new village of Amichai. Construction of new “neighborhoods” in existing settlements is also routine and done with government approval.
