Do you want to lodge a planning permit application with Mornington Peninsula Shire? Did you know we offer a dedicated pre-application service?

Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Planning Services Department processes around 2,400 planning applications per year and an average of 3,677 phone calls per month – making us the busiest Planning Services team across all Councils in the state!

To ensure we are meeting the needs of the community when processing planning applications, the Shire has taken steps to further improve the quality, responsiveness and professionalism of its planning services.

To better enhance our customer service, we have a dedicated pre-application service and a dedicated Pre-Application Planner. 

The Shire’s Pre-Application Planner provides this important pre-application service from our Mornington office.

Appointments are available to provide valuable pre-application advice to our community prior to the lodgement of planning applications and other planning related matters.

This enables applicants to discuss their proposal in detail, gain advice, and have opportunity to make any changes to their application prior to submission in line with Council’s requirements.

Appointments are 60 minutes and are available Monday to Friday.

To book an appointment with the Shire’s Pre-Application Planner Theresa Gwini visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/planningadvice or alternatively phone 5950 1010.
