Property Planning Maps

Landchecker provides seamless property planning maps as a tool that can be utilised by people working in many different professions as a source of reliable planning information. The data that Landchecker provides is your resource for making faster and insight-driven decisions. In addition to our property planning maps, Landchecker also provides other data-driven tools such as property reports, zoning maps, property boundaries, and much more.

What are planning maps?

Planning maps are visual representations of selected properties or areas that showcase land and ownership information, amongst other data. In addition, Landchecker’s planning maps detail property information such as land size, planning zones and overlay information. Landchecker is one of the only applications where our planning maps are displayed with additional layers such as high-resolution imagery.

What can you do with planning maps?

Regardless of your industry or interest, there are a multitude of functions that you're able to use within a planning map.

Due to Landchecker's unique web application, you can configure your specific planning map and efficiently share a property report in a PDF to colleges, business partners or those with a vested interest in the work, making workflow such as council approvals easier to navigate by understanding what’s been approved in the area.

When you use our online planning maps, you'll have seamless and readily available access to elements such as planning permits, heritage listing and zoning information. By using the Landchecker tool, you can make informed decisions on your next or existing property project. All the data you need is located in the one-source, which is fast, accurate and above all easy to use.

Why are planning maps useful?

For those interested in property development, such as developers, architects, or town planners, a planning map is your much-needed tool when working with council members and ensuring your submissions have the best chance of being by understanding what’s been approved in the area. In addition, our planning maps are online, so when you work collaboratively with other property professionals, architects and anyone else involved in a project, you can easily view and share your planning map with detailed property information whilst creating specific projects.

For homeowners or property investors, you can see if the proposed location of your new home or property investment is right for you based on the rich data enabled on your map. Some features include information on pending new development applications or permits, or for those who have children, Landchecker will also display all the nearby schools local to the property in question. If you’re considering building a home, you can also get a view of any digitised easements that may be present. With this powerful information at hand, you’re able to make an informed decision on the land you’re looking to purchase or develop.

Planning maps specific to your state

Due to each state being unique and having varied property and council rules, Landchecker has sourced data for the following states.

Victorian Planning Maps

Discover your planning map for Victoria. One of our customers favourite features that is widely used in Victoria is the ability to identify areas which carry a heritage overlay. Many inner city suburbs have restrictions on changes to the facade or structure of a property which may not suit your next property purchase. Having this information available quickly can allow you to make fast decisions on if a property in question is right for you.
