The Department of Planning and Urban Development was created on the 11 September 1989 and all staff of the State Planning Commission were transferred to the new Department from that date.
The Commission remained a separate entity, to act primarily as an advisory and policy-making body and to report direct to the Minister.
The Department of Planning and Urban Development was abolished in 1995 and the functions of this department were taken over by the Ministry of Planning.
