Mr MORRIS (Mornington) — In late March the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council moved to advise the Minister for Planning of its support for a planning scheme amendment to introduce controls to protect the Mount Eliza Woodland area, similar to the controls scuttled by former planning minister Justin Madden after they had gathered dust on his desk for two years.

The council decision will support the government’s election commitment to protect the Woodland area from the threat of extensive subdivision. It will allow local and state agencies to work with the community to introduce planning controls in line with community expectations and protect this sensitive area from inappropriate development.
 
The plan to protect the woodlands has a very high level of support, both within the immediate area and in the broader communities of Mount Eliza and Mornington.
 
I congratulate the council on its decision to continue its support for an appropriate planning regime for the Woodland area, and I look forward to working with the council and the community to achieve the best possible outcome.
 
Legislative Assembly 6 April 2011
