Housing development data provides information on the number and location of existing dwellings, vacant residential land, and recent residential development across all land within metropolitan Melbourne.
The data can be used to investigate residential change including the growth of housing stock, changes in housing density, and housing change in planning zones.
There is now ten years of Housing Development Data. Data is prepared for all individual lots across Melbourne where there is an existing dwelling or the lot is located in a land use planning zone that provides for residential uses.
The data for metropolitan Melbourne (31 Local Government Areas) can be downloaded through the Data Vic website.
The Project layer depicting housing activity over the years from 2005 and 2014 file shows ten years of development activity.
The Stock layer for calendar year 2014 file shows the number of dwellings on a lot as at 2014. Both files are available in a number of spatial formats.
