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.

GIPPS RIVER SURVEYS 1837-1899 also GLENELG, GOULBURN, LODDON, MURRAY, WIMMERA The surveying of major rivers in Victoria was commenced soon after the establishment of the Melbourne Survey Office to provide basic information about the physical geography of the new colony. Information produced by these surveys was very detailed and the resultant plans are extremely useful in tracing the movements of river channels since European settlement. Early pastoral settlements are sometimes plotted on these plans. This is a sub collection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

LC LAND CLASSIFICATION 1885-1960 The concept of land classification was introduced into the Land Act in 1884. Remaining Crown Lands were identified for leasing or sale and for reservation for public uses - e.g. water reserves and timber reserves. Land to be offered for private use was graded according to its productive capability, and conditions of tenure including rental and maximum allotment size were tailored accordingly. The first determinations were published in the mind 1880's, and later these were modified as further information became available and as interpretations of land capability changed. Mapping was based on county plans 1 inch:�2 miles3.219�Km 10,560�Feet 3,520�Yards 3,218.688�Meters 126,720�inch; those plans which are dated prior to 1884 are in fact the original working manuscripts, colour-coded on base plans which were published some years earlier. Land classification was perpetuated in all Land Acts following 1884 and plans were maintained as an administrative aid until the 1960's. Re-classifications of particular areas are reflected by the various groupings within this sub-collection. Plans numbered 1 to 37 represent the original classifications of the 1880's, approved by the Governor-in-council and published. Nos. 38-77 feature revisions published in the mid 1890's. Nos. 78-115 are manuscripts upon which the original plans were based; Nos. 118-138, 139-164 and 165-243 are working collections maintained by various branches of the Department of Crown Lands and Survey. The last mentioned grouping was maintained by the Occupation Branch which administered leases, licences and sales. This is a sub collection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

MELB. RL MELBOURNE ROLL 1851 - 1910 This series comprises plans of the Melbourne area which were originally stored rolled up, rather than being laid flat in conventional horizontal plan presses. Some of the items are exceptionally large and have been micro-filmed in many sections. Subject matter is varied, including landscape designs for city parks, maps showing streets and buildings which were drawn in preparation for the laying of sewerage and the installation of reticulated water supply and plans of dock and pier installations. Many of these plans are coloured but coding is not specified. This is a sub collection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

RUN PASTORAL RUNS 1847 - 1882 These plans portray the large areas of Crown Land licensed by squatters for grazing. All plans show the boundaries of the runs and those plans which refer to only one or a few runs may also give descriptions of vegetation and relief and plot tracks, fences, and huts. The sub-collection comprises three parts. Nos. 1-400 are a mixture of manuscripts drawn at small and large scales and may depict individual runs, or the array of runs occurring over whole regions. Nos. 401-1381 deal with individual runs and may be rough sketches or more carefully compiled manuscripts. These were originally held within pastoral run files, but in the course of microfilming these files prior to their transfer to the Public Record Office, Laverton the plans were extracted, repaired and formally added to the sub-collection. Nos. 1382 onwards are printed maps showing the distribution of runs over large areas.

CS COASTAL SURVEYS 1802 - 1923 This sub-collection comprises precise surveys of the Victorian coastline conducted between 1840 - 1870. These surveys were intended to define the configuration of the coastline, describe the structure of coastal vegetation and identify any land occupations. They were an integral part of the early topographic survey of Victoria. Many were compiled by the surveyor George D. Smythe. Published shipping charts of the 1860's and 1870's form a small proportion of the collection; the few plans which pre-date 1840 are copies of important surveys completed before the Melbourne Survey Office was established 1837. A sub collection of VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

RUN PASTORAL RUNS 1847 - 1882 These plans portray the large areas of Crown Land licensed by squatters for grazing. All plans show the boundaries of the runs and those plans which refer to only one or a few runs may also give descriptions of vegetation and relief and plot tracks, fences, and huts. The sub-collection comprises three parts. Nos. 1-400 are a mixture of manuscripts drawn at small and large scales and may depict individual runs, or the array of runs occurring over whole regions. Nos. 401-1381 deal with individual runs and may be rough sketches or more carefully compiled manuscripts. These were originally held within pastoral run files, but in the course of microfilming these files prior to their transfer to the Public Record Office, Laverton the plans were extracted, repaired and formally added to the sub-collection. Nos. 1382 onwards are printed maps showing the distribution of runs over large areas.
