Presenting the Mornington Peninsula Community Vision to 2040
Thank you to everyone in our community who contributed to the Peninsula 2040 community consultation that helped shape and develop a new community vision for the Mornington Peninsula
Over 3,000 people got involved to provide the feedback via surveys, online workshops, township pop-ups, postcards and drawings.
All your feedback was then sent off to a randomly selected Citizen's Panel of 50 people, who reviewed the feedback and referenced other council information to develop the community vision.
The panel was empowered to deliver the vision to Council who have committed to use it to guide the development of the Council Plan and other key initiatives.
Thank you to the Citizens Jury all your work and collaboration to distil the community feedback and data to come up with the Community Vision.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Community Vision.
