Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series of files relates to the provision of subsidies for tourist development projects throughout the state. Municipalities could apply to the Tourist Development Authority and its successor bodies for subsidies to improve facilities and amenities at recreational reserves and other tourist areas. Such works included upgrading toilet and amenities blocks, resealing access roads and improving boat ramp facilities.

    The files consist of papers held by a filing lace between two manila sheets, the top one containing agency title and file details. Documents contained on file include the subsidy application form, related plans and maps, correspondence with the municipality and relevant Government departments such as the Publics Works Department, Statements of Expenditure, contingencies claim forms and follow up reports.

    The files are arranged in a multiple number system, with the primary number denoting the municipality, the second number being the particular location and the tertiary numbers referring to the actual project. There may be several parts to a file, where there is more than one aspect to a project.

    The series as a whole is not worthy of permanent retention. However, a portion of the series has been retained as a sample of the manner in which the subsidies were administered and because the files concerned relate to areas of historical or conservationist interest.

    The remainder of the series is possibly now held by the Victorian Tourist Commission.
