Advocating for a better Peninsula
Published on 22 May 2023
Mornington Peninsula Shire has joined the Committee for Mornington Peninsula as a community member, strengthening our collective voice as we continue to work hard and advocate for our region.
The Committee for Mornington Peninsula is an independent, member-based organisation committed to leading and influencing long-term outcomes for the Mornington Peninsula.
The Committee works beyond electoral cycles and partisan politics to enhance social, economic and environmental sustainability to improve our region's liveability, growth and sustainability.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Steve Holland said our quest to get a better deal for the Mornington Peninsula is what we have in common.
“As a Council, we’re committed to achieving long-term outcomes for the Peninsula, and this partnership will amplify our call for additional State and Federal Government funding, policy attention and investment to our region.”
Josh Sinclair, CEO of the Committee for Mornington Peninsula, welcomed the partnership and said it reflected the shared spirit of advocacy between industry and local government on the Mornington Peninsula.
"We have many common objectives within Committee and the Shire, and we look forward to working together to help make those goals a reality."
"A strong collective voice is exactly what this region needs, and the partnership between the Shire and the Committee enhances that."
Cr Anthony Marsh, Council’s Small Business Champion said while the Mornington Peninsula is an amazing place to live and a great place to work, our residents and businesses don’t always have the support they need.
“Through our joint advocacy work, we hope to shine a light on this lack of attention and provide small businesses the support they need.”
