VIC DELWP - Vicmap Planning - Planning Scheme Overlay (Polygons)

This dataset presents the footprint of polygon features that represent overlay controls for all Victorian Planning Schemes. Overlays reflect specific characteristics of the land in an area, such as areas of significant vegetation or heritage value.

Vicmap is the foundation that underlies most spatial information in Victoria. This portfolio of spatial related authoritative data products, made up from individual datasets, is developed and managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP). Vicmap Planning is a series of state-wide datasets that representing the land use zone and overlay controls for all Victorian planning schemes as well as the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), which is a boundary that indicates the long-term limits of urban development in metropolitan Melbourne.

Please note:

  • This dataset is limited to 15,000 features due to the feature extraction limits of the Data.Vic WFS.
  • This dataset is classified as 'BB' accuracy, i.e. 90% of well-defined features are within 1mm, at plot scale, of their true position, e.g. 1:500 equates to +/- 0.5metre and 1:25,000 equates to +/- 25 metres.
  • It is recommended that Vicmap Planning is to be used in conjunction with Vicmap Property, as zone boundaries generally align to property boundaries.
