Vicmap Crown Land Tenure helps users to manage their interaction with Victoria’s Crown land by providing information about the private use of Crown land and government roads.

The Department of Transport and Planning provides the only Crown Land Tenure layer available. The layer assists customers planning, evaluating and managing their own assets in relation to Crown land, roads and reserves. Customers include resource and mining companies, water businesses and councils.

Vicmap Crown Land Tenure plays a key role in the management of Victoria’s Crown land. The product provides information about the private use of Crown land parcels and Crown roads.

The product includes land use licences such as:

  • grazing, water frontage and unused road licences
  • leases for commercial purposes
  • general or miscellaneous licences, permits and consents
  • pipeline and Water Supply licences
  • apiaries and bee farm licences
  • reserve status and reserve management – land gazetted or set aside for a specific use

The database is continually maintained by gaining regular input from authoritative sources within State Government. Vertical alignment is based on the cadastral boundaries of Vicmap Property.
