VIC DELWP - Vicmap Planning - Planning Scheme Urban Growth Area (Polygons)

This dataset presents the footprint of polygon features representing the balance of the municipality that is outside the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). The UGB is a boundary that indicates the long-term limits of urban development in metropolitan Melbourne. It only affects 17 Local Government Areas (LGAs) within the Melbourne metropolitan area.

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 classified as 'BB' accuracy, i.e. 90% of well-defined features are within 1mm, at plot scale, of their true position, eg. 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.
