A large variety of historical plans, currently available on 35mm microfilm, are being digitised to enable online access. The plans include City of Sydney Alignment plans and Water Board Detail Sheets.
How can these records help?
These are specialised plans and may not interest a wide audience. Surveyors and others will benefit from online access of these plans instead of requesting copies of aperture cards held in Queens Square.
Examples of plan use
City of Sydney Alignment plans show Sydney’s early street alignments and property boundaries and indicate building locations as well.
Images are available for purchase over the counter at LPI Queens Square. When scanning is complete plan images will be available through approved information brokers.
The numbering scheme for the miscellaneous plans is currently being developed.
