Feature and Level Surveys

"We are an all-inclusive shop for land development requirements”

Features and Level Surveys

Feature and level surveys are required as the initial starting point in all land development projects. They involve locating information on the subject site along with adjoining properties and street features. At Stacey Surveying, we can provide feature and level surveys as well as topographic surveying services for clients throughout Melbourne.

Comprehensive Feature and Levels Survey Plans

As professional and highly trained topographic land surveyors, we help land developers all across Melbourne formulate detailed feature survey plans.

A feature survey shows all of the natural and man-made features on a property.

Feature surveys can be very detailed, depending on the project’s needs, so get in touch to discuss your land survey further and find out an estimate for your feature survey cost.

We cater to individual requirements and can add or remove the required features upon request. With a licensed land surveyor on our team, we can also take care of all the surveying requirements that are part of building and planning permit applications for council. Please see our Resources page for examples of feature and level surveys.

What Does a Feature Survey Show?

A feature survey in Melbourne will show all information about a property, as well as any adjoining properties and other details required by your council in order to develop or make changes to land. This includes ground level, existing structures, fences, drains, utility services, trees and more.

How is a Feature Survey Used?


The results of a feature survey can be used by your designer to conduct their work and are also often needed for relevant council applications.
