Community and Council will work together to promote and develop the Wellesley Island group as a sustainable and liveable region.

Mornington Shire Council aims to lead the community towards an open, participative and proactive future, making it the place where people want to live, work, play and visit. Therefore, Council must work hard to ensure transparent governance forms the foundations for a democratic responsible government and a shared commitment to consistently do all the things required to enhance and preserve the cultural, social, environmental and economic factors that are important to the lives of future generations.

Mornington Shire Council community engagement aims to chart a new direction as we move towards our 2020 – 2040 plan. This direction will respect the region’s values and authenticity but look further to establish Mornington Shire as part of Australia’s community.
