Our Community

Mornington Shire Council's goals, pathways and priorities support for the partnership between council, community, business and industry to create a strategy for the whole region

The vision strategies and actions for our community need to be informed by the views of community members. Harnessing their input requires a range of strategies to foster community ownership and improve outcomes. To engage with all sectors of the community, multiple objectives and opportunities need to underpin the approach. This highlights the need to ensure Mornington Shire Council develops a well-tailored range of policies to suit community needs.

Mornington Shire Council is striving for the right blend of community engagement, governance and decision-making processes to determine a resilient region moving forward together.
Mornington Shire Council community engagement aims to chart a new direction as we move towards 2016. This direction will respect the region’s values and authenticity but look further to establish Mornington Shire as part of Australia’s community.


Council and Community Will Be Built On:

  1. strong leadership – that embraces partnerships, is agile and determined to succeed
  2. culture respect – acknowledgment of traditional owners of the land, respect to our elders both past and present
  3. capital investment – in essential infrastructure to support growth and competitiveness
  4. high-value industries – that generate enduring employment
  5. local to global connections – to markets where the region has a clear competitive advantage
  6. talent and skills – of its workforce and its community members.
