As of the 26th October 2012 the Pilbara Cities Office (PCO) has now been transferred to the Pilbara Development Commission (PDC) from the Department of Regional Development and Lands.

The Pilbara Cities vision is to build the population of Karratha and Port Hedland into cities of 50,000 people, and Newman to 15,000 people by 2035, with other Pilbara towns growing into more attractive, sustainable local communities.

Pilbara Cities has committed more than $1 billion in Royalties for Regions funds with relevant local and state government agencies across the key focus areas of infrastructure coordination, land availability and development, community projects and engagement and economic diversification.
