DPC Regional

In July 2011, the Department of Premier and Cabinet opened regional offices in Ballarat and Bendigo.

The offices will enable DPC to work more closely with local government, communities and businesses in regional Victoria to help address local issues and improve understanding of regional matters.

DPC is also able to work more closely with other departments and agencies in the regions to help enhance collaboration and coordination across government.

Through these actions, the regional offices will strengthen channels between the government and regional Victorians and facilitates DPC providing advice on regional matters to shape government projects and programs.
