What’s the difference between the Planning Report and VicPlan?
The Planning Report is designed for anyone who wants quick access to a summary of planning information about an individual property or land parcel. It’s perfect for those who already know the address of the property they are seeking information on.
VicPlan provides more comprehensive information on properties and the wider local government area. It’s interactive, so you can zoom and pan with ease, providing easy access to a range of planning and property information across a larger area.
How can I search for land via a Crown description?
Crown descriptions can be searched in the same way property and parcel descriptions are in the search bar. Although Crown land descriptions can be made up of numerous parts only a few of the main identifiers are needed to complete a search. The main parts to a Crown land description are, Parish name, allotment number, section number, eg. Parish Ararat Allot 1 Sec 15A. Crown descriptions can also include subdivision, portion and block numbers. A Crown land search will also display the corresponding lot and plan identifier in brackets after the Crown land descriptor, eg. Parish Ararat Allot 1 Sec 15A (1~15A\PP2020).
