Special Charge Schemes

St Johns Path Blairgowrie

Mornington Peninsula Shire is committed to providing new infrastructure to the community and maintaining its existing assets to a high standard. However, as the permanent resident population continues to increase, there has been a greater expectation that roads are sealed and footpaths are provided. In response, the Shire has a long history of using special charge schemes to assist in funding necessary infrastructure works such as the construction of unmade roads, the installation of footpaths and drainage upgrades.

Process

When conducting a special charge scheme, the Mornington Peninsula Shire strictly follows the statutory process as defined by the Local Government Act 1989.
To view the process, download the Special Charge Schemes Policy for Infrastructure Works(PDF, 980KB). The Policy contains a detailed description of the special charge scheme process as well as step-by-step flow charts on pages 16 and 17.
