Vicmap Planning helps you to visualise and analyse your business information with Victoria’s planning scheme map information.

The Department of Transport and Planning provides:

  • planning scheme zones and overlays
  • Melbourne’s urban growth boundary.

Vicmap Planning customers include town planners, water businesses and authorities, utilities and government.

Each planning scheme contains:

  • Zones indicating the type of land uses that may be appropriate in that zone, such as residential, industrial or rural.
  • Overlay controls reflecting specific characteristics of land in an area, for example significant vegetation or heritage values.

Vicmap Planning represents the land use zone and overlay controls for all Victorian planning schemes. Planning schemes are based on the 79 local government areas and also cover three other areas in Victoria: French Island, Alpine Resorts and Port of Melbourne Planning Schemes.
