Abstract

The Planning for the Peel Food Zone project is part of Phase 1 of the Transform Peel initiative.Transform Peel is intended to be a ‘disruptive’ long-term program that supports economic growth, diversification and creates jobs in the Peel region. Transform Peel recognises the importance of protecting the internationally recognised waterways and wetlands of the Peel–Harvey Estuary and aims to halve the nutrient loads entering its waterways from the surrounding catchment.

The $49.3 million Phase 1 program for Transform Peel comprises three main components: Peel Food Zone; Peel Integrated Water Initiative; Peel Business Park.

This report summarises the findings from the Peel Food Zone project. It recommends implementing a planning approach as well as initiatives and activities that support the agriculture and food aspirations for Transform Peel, including how they align with DPIRD’s strategic intent to protect, grow and innovate primary industries and regional areas of WA.
