Have Your Say: Coastal Villages and Neighbourhood Character Strategy

We're inviting the community to provide input to two concurrent projects that are being developed: the Coastal Villages and Neighbourhoods Strategy (Western Port Townships) and the Mornington Peninsula Neighbourhood Character Strategy (entire municipality). 

Together the projects will guide future development (public and private) in the coastal townships in the Western Port area of the municipality.

The Coastal Villages and Neighbourhoods Strategy seeks to address the following two issues for the coastal towns and settlements along Western Port Bay within the Mornington Peninsula Shire:

  • Climate change impacts relating to coastal inundation and coastal erosion.
  • Protecting and enhancing their character in response to the pressure for change.

The Mornington Peninsula Neighbourhood Character Study seeks to determine areas where neighbourhood character values exist within the municipality and whether they require protection or enhancement. 

This is the first round of public community consultation. The community will have additional opportunities to provide thoughts and suggestions in the coming months. 

Have your say

Community consultation is currently open until Sunday 16 December.
