Curious about where you live

May 2013 – Curious about where you live?

Do you ever use Google earth or street view to look at your property?

Did you now that there is another online resource which can provide more detailed information on your property?

The department of planning provide detailed information on every property address in Victoria. The information is available online via a detailed town planning report. Best of all, these reports are absolutely free. You can obtain your own report by clicking here.

This information might be very useful for: 

  • Homeowners wishing to renovate or extend
  • Anyone interested in purchasing an investment property in the hope of redeveloping or extending
  • Anyone interested in purchasing retail or commercial land and acquiring a permit for change of use
  • Anyone who is simply curious!

If you need some expert advice as to what this policy actually means and how it can affect the value of your property contact one of our expert town planners today.
