Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
Following upon the agreement between the States and the Commonwealth in 1944 that development and decentralisation would be, in the post-war years, planned on a regional basis, a Cabinet decision of 12 April, 1944 led to the formation of the State Regional Boundaries Committee. The members of the Committee were Mr W Jungwirth (Secretary to the Premiers Department), the Surveyor-General (Mr W Corrigan) and from Water Supply, Mr Lang. The Committee had the power to coopt.

The Committee was appointed:

To make enquiries and to make recommendations as to the Regional Boundaries which might be adopted within the State of Victoria.

This was to be the prelude to an investigation and detailed survey of the States resources and for the planning and future development of those resources.

This work was carried on by the Central Planning Authority (VA 4151) and the Regional Committees comprised of elected municipal representatives and appointed Government representatives which were formed throughout the State.
