Land iQ is a world first data platform designed to improve the planning system by helping NSW government agencies make faster, smarter decisions about the use of land.
It uses smart technology to speed up planning processes and help unlock more homes for people by identifying barriers and exploring opportunities to provide practical solutions across the state.
Land iQ brings more than 40 land use data types into one single platform, making it easy to search more than 8 million lots and properties to test the impact of different land use scenarios.
The tool is already being used to support the delivery of temporary housing in Northern NSW as part of the government’s flood response.
It’s a living platform designed to continue to evolve and adapt to the future needs of users, leveraging new digital resources as they become available.
It’s available to NSW Government agencies while we continue to refine the tool and develop license options to make it available to other levels of government, Councils, Local Aboriginal Land Councils, researchers and industry.
