Welcome to The Committee for Mornington Peninsula

We all love living and working on the Peninsula. Our future centres on creating opportunities and the best living conditions for every generation. To meet this need, we can and must do a better job at attracting State and Federal Government funding support, policy attention and sustainable investment.

Whilst not immediately evident to all, there are very real social and economic challenges our community faces, and it is only with all of us bringing our best contribution forward can we hope to have front-of-mind with decision makers and to secure positive action to see them addressed.

Thinking Ahead

Our approach is to be future focused and research and evidence based to ensure our work is strongly directed at driving, developing and safeguarding the future prosperity and sustainability of the Mornington Peninsula and the region.

Influence

As an independent, membership-based organisation we work collaboratively with stakeholders, opinion leaders, influencers and policy makers to support our regions development.

Leadership
