While the State Government considers MPS a Peri- Urban area (a non-urban area adjacent to cities), it is very much Shire’s view that MPS is not part of greater Melbourne. The MPS has therefore been running a number of community workshops on the future look, feel and role of the Mornington Peninsula. At the same time it has tried to gauge community concerns for the future. Feedback from the workshops formed the basis of the Shire’s submission to the State Government’s Mornington Peninsula Planning Statement – a plan that will set the direction, extent and nature of development on the Peninsula for the next 20-30 years. The Metropolitan Planning Strategy and Regional Growth Plans can be found at
The NCG has also written to the State Government supporting the MPS position.
