What are your thoughts on how Council manages community assets?

Published on 15 July 2020


You’re invited to have your say on how Mornington Peninsula Shire manages community assets and provide your thoughts on Council’s Asset Management Framework
Assets are fundamental in allowing the Shire to plan and deliver services to the community. 
The Shire is responsible for managing more than $2 billion worth of assets on behalf of the community, and must plan for their acquisition, operation, maintenance, renewal, upgrade, expansion and disposal. 
These assets include bridges, buildings, drainage, marine structures, parks and streetscapes, pathways, recreation and leisure, roads and water sensitive urban design. 

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Sam Hearn said “Council is committed to valuing, protecting and enhancing the unique characteristics and way of life on our Peninsula”. 
“To achieve this, we need to ensure sound asset management practices are in place to protect and improve the built and natural assets on the Peninsula. 
“This review will see the value of community assets and the services that community assets provide to residents. By having good asset management practices, we can ensure our services are well supported”.
The Asset Management Framework comprises of:

  • Asset Management Policy (outlines the Shire’s commitment to Asset Management)
  • Asset Management Strategy (sets the direction and overall objectives for Asset Management at the Shire)
  • Asset Management Plans (outlines the detailed asset plans for the Shire’s major asset classes)
