VicPlan is Victoria’s official statewide planning zone and overlay information service covering all 3.5 million properties in Victoria.

VicPlan was introduced in August 2017 to replace the traditional 15,000 PDF grid maps and will fully replace the Planning Maps Online website.

VicPlan is one of the many tools available on Each year, more than 5 million people use our planning tools and over 2.5 million people access Planning Report.

The tool utilises the latest ESRI technology and overtime will be further enhanced to introduce new datasets and features.

The updates for Release 2.2.2 include:
  • Switching between base maps issue has now been resolved
  • Overlay Filter tool issue resolved
  • Planning Scheme Overlay display resolved
Our next release will include:
  • Geolocation feature which denotes user’s device location on the map
  • Advanced tab for sophisticated analytical and visualisation tools
  • Improved searching with more options
  • Date stamp on imagery layer
  • A key future priority for 2018/2019 is the introduction of Planning Scheme Spatial Histories which will enable the end the production of the traditional PDF grid maps. These initiatives will help realise the goal of a fully digital planning system in Victoria.

    We are keen to engage with VicPlan users in the design of future releases of VicPlan. A feedback form can be found within the application on the Home tab of the toolbar.
