History

Prior to the formation of the Peel Development Commission, the South West Development Authority had operated an office in Mandurah since February 1985, to service the rapidly growing Peel Region.

On November 30 1992, Cabinet approved the formation of the Peel Development Commission which was established on 1 January 1993 under Section 21 of the Public Service Act 1978. The Commission became a Statutory Authority with proclamation of the Regional Development Commissions Act 1993 on 8 April 1994. The Commission is one of nine regional development commissions established through the Act to facilitate economic and social development in Western Australia's regions.

The purpose of the Peel Development Commission is to coordinate and promote the economic and social development of the Peel Region.

As part of a series of Machinery of Government changes effective from 1 July 2017, staff of the Peel Development Commission were transferred to the new Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development. The Commission remains a Statutory Authority under this new arrangement.
