The Committee for Mornington Peninsula has renewed its call for the Peninsula’s metropolitan classification to be changed to regional. This follows yesterday’s announcement by Premier Daniel Andrews of a two-week extension to metropolitan Melbourne’s Stage 4 COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

“Like most people in Victoria, the CfMP were dismayed yesterday at the Premier’s announcement about the continued restrictions for the Mornington Peninsula,” the CfMP said in a statement today. “The CfMP advocated strongly at the start of restrictions for the Mornington Peninsula to be included in the regional restrictions; however, we remain included in the metropolitan lockdown.

“Daniel Andrews yesterday said Geelong, which has had the highest number of COVID-19 cases outside Melbourne, was under close watch and could be classified separately to the rest of regional Victoria. It’s a shame the same can’t be applied to keeping an eye on the Mornington Peninsula and classifying us separately to the rest of metropolitan Melbourne if the health data supports this.”

The CfMP called on the community to contact Nepean state Labor MP Chris Brayne and ask him to push for the Peninsula to be given the same consideration as Geelong for a localised solution.

“The CfMP continue to advocate for our community to be given a level playing field that removes the economic and other disadvantages we face being classified as part of metropolitan Melbourne. At the present time, our thoughts are with the Mornington Peninsula community and local business owners being impacted by the current and ongoing restrictions. Please feel free to reach out to us if there is any way you think we could be of assistance.”

Mr Brayne can be emailed at chris.brayne@parliament.vic.gov.au; the CfMP can be emailed at info@committeeformp.com.au
