The mandatory deliverable was to categorise and record basic land use information for each specified state government land site within the Melbourne metropolitan Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), which for the time, represented 14,723 such sites.
Spatial Vision undertook a process of identifying the primary current land use of properties owned by the state government in Victoria’s four largest metropolitan areas Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo. Using various public datasets and undertaking analysis of government-owned properties using a series of workflows based on complex business rules, Spatial Vision was able to confirm or identify a primary land use for 20,500 government-owned properties. Additional analysis identified secondary land uses (for a school, secondary land uses include sporting facilities, car parks etc), to apportion the amount of land occupied by each land use and assign Australian Valuation Property Classification Codes for each use.
In addition, Spatial Vision were required to develop a solution in a way that was transferrable, so that DELWP could run the process independently in future.
Our solution was engineered with sustainability in-mind with a view to not only introduce efficiencies in critical decision-making, inform and drive strategic planning, development and regulatory compliance activities but by design, to be adaptable, repeatable and achieve incremental cost savings for DELWP over time.
To ensure successful delivery, adoption and longer-term use, our solution not only included supporting user notes, but was reinforced by on-site training, mentoring and support services.
