Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
Reclassify the Shire of Mornington Peninsula
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that the Shire of Mornington Peninsula should be reclassified from metro to rural. The economy of the Mornington Peninsula is on a knife edge and the new restrictions will cripple small rural businesses and is not necessary based on our COVID-19 numbers.

Leave the Shire of Mornington Peninsula at Stage 3 regional restrictions. It is not possible for many residents, being 70 per cent rural and 30 per cent residential, to feasibly stay within a five-kilometre radius of their homes to shop for the things they need. Case numbers are very small and stable with none of the growth as seen in other areas. We are 70 per cent rural, please don’t kill our economy.
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Minister for Local Government and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning to reclassify the Shire of Mornington Peninsula to rural and continue the Stage 3 restrictions in the Shire.
