At its Planning Services Committee Meeting on Monday 15 July 2019, Council adopted the Somerville Township Structure Plan.

The Plan identifies land use, urban design and transport concepts, with particular focus on pedestrian connectivity and safety, to boost the successful growth and enhancement of Somerville’s township over the next 15 years.

The project began in late September 2018 with visioning workshops held with the community and targeted stakeholder engagement to identify the vision and themes to help develop the draft Somerville Township Structure Plan.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill thanked those community members who participated in providing their thoughts.

“We are pleased to have had such strong community and stakeholder involvement during the preparation of this essential Plan”.

Watson Ward Councillor Julie Morris said this was a great opportunity to work closely with residents to establish a robust and strategic structure Plan for the Somerville community.

“The Somerville Township Structure Plan will help us improve elements of the township, as well as capture and enhance the attributes of Somerville that are most loved”.
