Nature Conservation Reserve -Public Land Management

This dataset describes public land management for the State of Victoria, where Public Land is defined as land held by/vested in/or owned by DELWP and other government departments, public authorities, Commonwealth government and municipalities. Refer to VEAC Act 2001 for more details.

Public land includes state forests, parks and reserved and unreserved Crown land, including estuarine, coastal and marine areas to the 3 nautical mile limit (5.5 km) from the high watermark. This layer is represented at a scale of 1:25 000 and describes the primary management, land manager and the VEAC recommendations.

PLM25 is a derived layer, using VMPROP.PARCEL_CROWN_APPROVED as the base layer. It relies on tabular and spatial sources to get the land description. PORTAL, PRIMS are the tabular sources of information. PARKRES, VEACRECS25 and CL_TENURE are the spatial sources. Additional layers were also created to describe areas of state forests, plantations, water frontages and commonwealth land.

PLM25 has replaced the old PLM100 datasets.

Geospatial Accuracy Parks and Reserves are getting populated with their Land Manager from the PRIMS database. For remaining parcels the Land Manager is being populated from the Portal database and CL tenure dataset. These datasets have known issues, so use the land manager information with care and check were possible. The LCC Approval date is initially being populated with the main approval date for the LCC investigation, individual recommendations were often approved at a later date, these dates will be added as the information is compiled and will not be available in the initial release of the data. State game reserve data is incomplete. There are issues with names across the dataset. State forest names vary in their reliability, some are from official naming processes, while others are draft names using locality information to try to give all forest blocks a name rather than the generic "unnamed state forest" tag. Over time regional staff will systematically check these names and provide official names. Polygons are derived from multiple sources: - Vicmap parcels (1:2 500 - 1:25 000) - Digital certified plan boundaries for areas recently scheduled under the National Parks Act 1975 at (1:25 000) - Boundaries digitised by the Parks and Protected Areas Branch (based on 1:25 000 topography) - CL_Tenure polygons - Data provided by Parks Victoria for Port Phillip
