PROC PROCLAIMED ROADS 1876 - 1890 Under the Local Government Act passed in 1869 municipal councils had power to manage all lands which were defined as roads by formal proclamation. From 1876 proclamations were published in the Government Gazette and these referred to special plans on which the proclaimed roads were shaded. Proclamation proceeded systematically, with plans being produced for whole parishes. This procedure was operative until the early 1890's by which time approximately 1200 parishes had been gazetted. Thereafter proclamation was considered unnecessary if road abuttals were shown on Crown grant title deeds. If abuttals were found not to exist along any particular surveyed road, an ad hoc proclamation would be gazetted. The method of systematically defining roads, parish by parish, was undoubtedly time consuming. But it did produce a concise geographical picture and the proclaimed road plans remain important legal documents. To determine the extent of proclaimed roads in parishes which were not gazetted, it is necessary to investigate the title for each Crown allotment and search all Government Gazettes for any ad hoc proclamations post-dating the early 1890's. This is a subcollection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

This grouping contains a number of distinct types of plan, some of which were originally part of the record plan series.

Forests Reserves W, A - cadastral plans drawn before the establishment of the Forests Department in 1880, showing the location of forest reserves.

Defence Plans DEF - cadastral plans with levels plotted, and contour maps; produced for defence purposes during the early 20th century when a fear of invasion of Port Philip by the Russians was wide-spread. The numbering of this grouping begins at 52 due to an administrative error. Contour Plans C and others - plans of various areas showing contours. Border with SA BO - copies of published plans showing the disputed territory along the Victorian - South Australian border.
