Update arrangements for Council Meetings
Published on 08 April 2020
In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mornington Peninsula Shire will be temporarily changing its Council Meetings and Planning Services Committee Meetings schedule for the next six months or until there is legislative change.
Under the Local Government Act, physical Council Meetings must be held, however the Shire will be reducing the time and frequency of the meetings to ensure the health and safety of staff and Councillors.
The proposed schedule will see Ordinary Council Meetings and Planning Services Committee Meetings held on the same night on a monthly basis. Forward Planning Meetings will be cancelled or postponed.
The meetings will be held at the Mornington Shire Council Office to adhere to the social distancing guidelines of 1.5 metres.
