Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Valuation of Land Act 1960 (No.6653) was assented to on 15 June 1960. This Act provided for the appointment of a Valuer-General, and support staff, within the Local Government Department (VA 601). The appointment of the first Valuer-General occurred on 11 October 1960. It was not until 1969, however, that the Public Service Lists show an administratively separate Office of the Valuer-General, subordinate to the Local Government Department. This development of the Office occurred following the transfer of the valuations staff from the Land Tax (Valuation) Branch of the Department of the Treasurer (VA 865). The Office has also been subordinate to the Department of Property and Services (VA 430) from March 1985 to January 1991 and to the Ministry of Finance (VA 3016) since January 1991.
