Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
Under an Order-in-Council published in the Victoria Government Gazette on 23 April 1969 the Geelong Regional Planning Authority was established subject to section 12 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1961.

The Authority was to consist of 18 members comprising two representatives of each of the following municipalities:
Geelong
Geelong West
Newtown
Queenscliff
Bannockburn
Barrabool
Bellarine
Corio
South Barwon.
The Authority commenced operations on 31 July 1969.

In 1975 the Geelong Regional Planning Authority Act was passed with the intention of furthering the growth and development of the Geelong area especially through the control of planning aspects. Section 28(1) of that Act states:

The Geelong Regional Authority constituted under this Act shall be deemed to be the same body as the Geelong Regional Planning Authority constituted immediately before this Act.

In 1977 the Geelong Regional Commission Act was proclaimed and came into effect on 1 August 1977. The new Commission (VA 426) became the successor in law to the Authority.
