From today Mornington Peninsula Shire’s new Stormwater Quality in-lieu Contribution Scheme will be applicable to all new eligible planning applications on the Mornington Peninsula.
Planning applicants can opt to meet their stormwater quality requirements on-site or voluntarily pay to offset by contributing towards the Scheme up to 100 per cent of the compliance requirements. The Scheme offers flexible options which can be more cost-effective compared to on-site works. Financial contributions collected through the Scheme will go towards managing stormwater to protect our local environment right here on the Mornington Peninsula where the impact of development occurs.
These projects will improve the water quality entering our creeks, Port Phillip and Western Port.
