Online Draft Digital District Plan Help

What is the URL for the Draft Digital District Plan?

How do I find a property in the Draft Digital District Plan?

To search for a property you have two options:

1. Using text search
Start typing an address into the search box, and you will start to see possible matches appear below. Possible matches will reduce the more you type. once you see the property you want, either click or use the up/down arrow keys to highlight it and hit enter. Watch this short video to see it in action.

Addresses with a letter should be entered with a space between the number and letter (e.g. 32 A). Unit addresses should be entered with spaces and a hyphen (e.g. 1 – 22). 

2. Using the Map
To zoom in or out, either use the mouse wheel or use the ”+” or “-” buttons (top left of the map).
To scroll around the map, click and hold and drag the mouse in the desired direction.
Once you have found the property you want on the screen, click on it, and it will highlight the boundary.
Details of the selected property will display in the left-hand panel next to the map.

Something isn't working or I need help

If the e-plan freezes at all and a flipping icon appears you need to refresh the URL in the browser and you will be taken back to the e-plan landing page.
