Additional human language abstract/description

The Administrative Boundaries - Local Government Boundaries Dataset is the spatial representation of the Local Government areas of Queensland. The dataset provides the map base for systems dealing with Local Government areas and provides data in order to generate hard copy map products.

The dataset is a reference layer for spatial information systems in Queensland.

For coastal Local Government areas, the Local Government area comprises the mainland and all islands above their respective sea-shores within the encompassed area, except for Brisbane Local Government area, which comprises the mainland above Low-Water Mark and includes the whole of Fisherman, Green, Mud and St Helena Islands (being islands situated in or adjacent to Moreton Bay) above the Low-Water Mark, excepting land lying below High-Water Mark on both banks of the Brisbane River and any other river, creek or stream within the area.

Although Weipa Town LG area is not included in the Local Government Act, it is recognised as a Local Government under the Commonwealth Aluminium Corp Pty Ltd Agreement (Weipa Town Plan) Regulation 1994 Sub Legislation No 339.

Although the Island community councils are not included in the Local Government Act, they are recognised as Local Governments under the Community Services (Torres Strait) Act and associated Regulations.

Resource purpose/summary

Report
Data quality report, measure description
Completeness of coverage : Complete. This dataset contains all the Queensland Local Government Areas constituted under the Local Government Act 1993. This dataset also includes the Weipa Town and the Island community councils recognised under other legislation in order to have a more complete dataset.

Completeness of verification :
  The validation process consisted of the visual inspection/comparison of hard
  copy output against the gazetted departmental Local Government Boundary (LGB)
  maps. (Please note that these LGB maps still remain the point of truth for
  local government boundary descriptions).
