The Mornington Peninsula Shire Heritage Review proposes the review of existing heritage overlays in the Shire and identification of additional potential heritage places.
For the purposes of review, the Shire has been divided into four study areas and stages.
Stage 1: Mount Eliza, Mornington, Mount Martha - now completed and new Heritage Overlays applied
Stage 2: Safety Beach to Rye (including hinterland areas like Boneo, Fingal, St Andrews Beach) – now completed
Stage 3: Sorrento and Portsea – research currently undertaken
Stage 4: Somerville, Hastings, coastal townships and rural areas – future (preliminary works commenced)
