Campaign for ‘regional designation’ for the Mornington Peninsula continues…

Following the Committee for Mornington Peninsula’s presentation to the Victorian Opposition’s Shadow Cabinet, awareness and momentum is building for our case for change.

Media reporting of this key C4MP policy focus has generated further local examples where the lumping in of the Mornington Peninsula with greater Melbourne is disadvantaging local businesses and residents.

C4MP press for ‘regional’ designation for the Peninsula

The formal designation of the Mornington Peninsula as a ‘regional’ rather than a metropolitan community was a priority initiative presented to the Victorian shadow cabinet by leading local advocacy group, Committee for Mornington Peninsula.

The C4MP group urged the Liberal National Party Shadow Ministers to recognise that the Peninsula was not Melbourne and that successive State Government’s had failed to distinguish the region from the metropolitan area.
