SHOULD THE MORNINGTON PENINSULA BE REMOVED FROM THE GREATER MELBOURNE AREA?
The Mornington Peninsula Tourism Board is requesting the State Government remove the Mornington Peninsula from the Greater Melbourne area. There are advantages to this such as payroll tax discounts, study subsidies, investment in schools and government services. It should be noted however that Peninsula Health embraces Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals and all the other public health services , such as Aged Care, rehabilitation, and community health services in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. Separation may be detrimental to the Mornington Peninsula.
The Committee for Mornington Peninsula also believes that the region should be removed from the Greater Melbourne Area. See link: https://www.committeeformp.com.au/news-and-media/media-release-regionalisation-of-mornington-peninsula/
