During the 1999 election campaign Martin Dixon MP made a commitment that a re-elected Coalition government would introduce a localised planning statement to help protect the Mornington Peninsula from overdevelopment.
Unfortunately over the next 11 years of Labor governments, fully supported by the Greens, nothing was done.
Thankfully, the Matthew Guy MP as the former planning minister fulfilled our commitment and introduced the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement to ensure the Peninsula has a unique status and is not classed as just another suburb of Melbourne.
Town planning and protection of what we and our visitors love about the Peninsula is incredibly important and only the Liberals have a policy to achieve this.
