Get Involved

Create. Believe. Get Involved.

You are part of our community

Council must meet the expectations of the community and play its part in responding to the challenges and opportunities confronting the region.

And, Council remains firmly committed to its vision for the Mornington Shire, first articulated in 2014: let’s move the region forward, together.

And together, we can achieve great things.

There are many ways to get involved with the community through local Council events.

Council hope, through a collaborative effort, we exceed the needs of residents and visitors through a series of projects and festivals; keeping traditions strong while maintaining our respect for land and sea and building on our economy.

Council encourage you to be an active voice and participate.

Join in the conversations: voice concerns, celebrate positive outcomes, learn from mistakes, be proactive, keep our culture alive, work towards an even better tomorrow and assist council in making our region be one of Australia’s most sustainable and liveable remote indigenous shires.

As part of Council’s commitment to nurturing the creative abilities and skills of the community, particularly young Australian’s, our team are working to provide:

  • support for the training and education leading to the discovery of new skills, innovative ideas and the advancement of knowledge
  • assistance towards facilities and equipment that may be needed to become internationally competitive
  • support for the training and skills development of next generations – building on local sustainability
  • incentives to work in partnerships, forming alliances with Council

Council is a local service provider, an advocate and a regulator, but it cannot be all things to all people. Council has a specific and limited range of tools available to assist the community. By focussing on excellence in delivering its services, council makes a meaningful and tangible contribution to the strength and wellbeing of the region.
