Engaged Community will Deliver for our Region

Given you’re reading this, you probably find yourself on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. You’re either here as a local who has decided to call this place home; you’re working in one of our ever-growing business hubs and precincts scattered across the Peninsula; or you’re spending your tourist dollars at one of our fine hospitality or recreational venues.


Unfortunately, there’s a glaring problem: there is not enough government investment made in our region, and we must change that. As the population increases and residents rely on more services and infrastructure, we need government to take the Peninsula more seriously.


The Committee for Mornington Peninsula provides a unified voice to advance the region, advocate for significant government investment, and influence the direction of the Mornington Peninsula over the coming decades. One of the five main pillars of the Committee for Mornington Peninsula’s strategic objectives is to create and cultivate an engaged community in our region. To do this, we need to work closely – in a bipartisan way – with our elected representatives, stay top of mind for decision-makers at state and federal government, and provide Mornington Peninsula businesses and community organisations the opportunity to form and influence our advocacy goals.


So how are we doing this? The committee will provide regular gatherings and opportunities for our members to engage with influential decision-makers. We will also facilitate regular roundtable conversations on policy matters that affect us as a region – because we are unique to the rest of Melbourne, and we must embrace that.


This year, the committee is working collaboratively with local government on the Peninsula’s advocacy priorities because we are more powerful as a region with a united voice.  Strong advocacy and leadership is required to improve our region’s social and economic capacity in order to make the Peninsula the best place to live, work and visit.
