Our online mapping application is designed to help you find information relating to properties within the Local Government Area (LGA). The aim is to provide a user friendly interface to search or browse for properties and land constraints.
With this in mind, we are providing two different mapping apps. Both of these are compatible with most common web browsers including Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10, and Safari.
Before you jump into the app the image below will give you an overview of the basic functions. For those who want to understand more about the information read on below.
Within the app there are seven different work contexts where information can be obtained.
- Acid Sulfate Soils
- Bushfire Prone Vegetation
- Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2010 – Land Zoning
- Property Constraints
In our new mapping we have chosen to use Land and Property Information (LPI) layers. This gives a similar look and feel to what people are used to seeing in Google maps. The regular Council layers however are still available and provide more specific information associated with constraints that cover our LGA.
When you open the app the default view is the General work context. This is an information type view where the base layers show places of interest. This base layer can be easily searched by property address or Lot and DP.
It needs to be noted that with the use of two different datasets there will be times when the datasets do not quite match. Discretion will be needed when analysing the information. Some of the datasets have also been set to only display when the map is at a certain zoom level. These can be identified in the legend, as they will have the tick greyed out until you are at the correct display level.
If you are looking to develop land within our LGA, and need to know which constraints affect a property, the Property Constraints work context is the most important. The remaining work contexts have been been developed for a quick overview of these more popular layers.
The online mapping is very much a live system. As such we will continually be updating and adding layers as needs arise. We are always keen to hear your feedback so if there is anything you would like to see added or improved on the site please give us a call or send us an email and let us know your thoughts.
