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.


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


It is our intent to have a membership base of local, national and international organisations and individuals who set aside commercial gain, sectoral interests and personal perspectives to provide a united voice on the issues facing the Mornington Peninsula.

Current Members

Our current member body includes leading businesses from a wide variety of sectors, and
we especially thank our Platinum Members for their positive contribution and investment in the region.


Why are we important?

The Committee for Mornington Peninsula has been formed because we need to work with our community and all levels of government to address our challenges.


Our Purpose

The purpose of the Association is to be an independent, member-based organisation committed to leading and influencing long-term outcomes and contributing to the strategic objectives for the broader Mornington Peninsula.

The Association works beyond electoral cycles and partisan politics with the aim of enhancing the social, economic and environmental sustainability to improve livability, growth and sustainability of the region.
