Overview

The Mornington Peninsula Shire is committed to enhancing the safe participation and health and wellbeing of people who use motorised scooters and other motorised mobility devices.  Council has developed a range of resources to assist users of these mobility devices to maximise their independence. See below for further resources.

The Recharge Scheme is an initiative which invites businesses to provide a power point for people to recharge the batteries of their electric wheelchair or scooter. There are many people within our Shire who have restricted access and rely on these vehicles as a means of transport.

The batteries on electric wheelchairs and scooters last only a few hours, and so having many accessible Recharge locations throughout the peninsula will allow people to travel for longer and be more active in the community.

For further information see the Recharge website link below which has a full listing of all the recharge points. 

If you would like your business to be involved in the Recharge Scheme program contact Council on (03) 5950 1099 or email CYFCCustomerfocus@mornpen.vic.gov.au
