Every now and then, community members wish to acknowledge the life of a deceased loved one with a memorial in a public open space. Many find comfort in having a place to visit and see a public memorial as a tribute to someone who meant a lot to them.
Memorial types can include a bench seat, tree planting, roadside memorials, war memorials and public art work.
We are updating our Public Memorials Policy and we’re inviting our community to have their say.
We would like your feedback on the following questions:

Quote attributable to Mayor Councillor Anthony Marsh:
“Memorials allow people to remember a special someone. Memorials on the Mornington Peninsula must have a community benefit, for example a park bench that anyone can use.
“We want to know what type of memorials you think are appropriate in various locations, how long they should be in place and any other comments you may have.”
