Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Central Planning Authority, chaired by the Minister of State Development and Decentralisation was established in 1946 to coordinate regional committees which were to investigate and survey regional resources, advise on potential development of resources and advise on outstanding problems. Eleven of these Committees were established between 1947 and 1949 each consisting of six elected municipal representatives from the region and six representatives appointed by the Government from Commerce, Industry, the Public Service and local authorities. Regional boundaries had been determined by the report of the State Regional Boundaries Committee 1944.

Functions of each regional committee were to:

* make surveys and investigations into regional resources

* advise on the potential development of resources

* provide a common ground for discussion between local administrators and interested parties on the problems and methods of coordinating public services

* advise on outstanding problems which required attention from executive authorities.

These Committees were discontinued after the establishment of a separate Department for State Development and the formation of Regional Planning Authorities.
