Advice on Aspects of Public Land Use Information

Register Interest

VEAC was requested on 30 November 2020 by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change the Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP to provide advice on aspects of public land use information.

The request is for technical advice on aspects of public land use information and does not extend to recommending changes to public land use.

The full terms of reference are available here.

The advice will focus on:

(a)    data on recreational activities on Victoria’s public land and any significant knowledge gaps relating to those activities, and

(b)    improvements to the VEACRECs25 dataset.

VEACRECs25 is a dataset maintained by VEAC that provides a spatial representation at 1:25,000 scale of the public land use decisions of the Victorian Government or Parliament, including the government-accepted recommendations of VEAC and its predecessors (the Environment Conservation Council and the Land Conservation Council). VEACRECs25 is a key tool to help land managers and the community understand the purpose for which public land is to be managed.

VEAC must provide reports containing its advice by December 2021 with separate reports for topics (a) and (b). VEAC must also provide a progress update on its work by June 2020 and make this information publicly available.
