Coordinating policy and advice for government land

The State Government is responsible for 40 per cent of Victoria’s land, with more than 100 different agencies managing it.

A key role for Land Use Victoria is to provide quality information and advice about the best use of government land. We also support planning for future government land requirements in priority precincts or areas identified as a focus for future development.

Making it easy to access government land information online

Bringing together data from many agencies will unlock the value of government land information for the benefit of all Victorians.


Work is underway to develop an online tool to make it easier to find information about government owned land. Land Use Victoria wants your feedback about how you use existing services and why you access government land information. This feedback will help shape the online tool and deliver the best experience possible. Please complete this short survey to have your say.

Better government land use to respond to future housing needs

Land Use Victoria supports better use of government land to increase the supply of social and affordable housing as outlined in the recently released Plan Melbourne 2017-2050. We will also contribute to the Homes for Victorians strategy by identifying government-owned sites for the Inclusionary Housing Program.

Unlocking the public value of government land

The Victorian Government Land Use Policy provides a framework for assessing public value and maximising the government's land assets.
