Mornington Peninsula Shire is inviting community feedback on its approach to planning and managing water through climate change and population growth. “With 70 per cent green wedge land and 192km of coastline, our water and land management plays an important role for our community, economy and environment,” the shire said in a statement this morning.

The shire said its draft Integrated Water Management Plan would shape future water security through:
• Making alternative water sources such as rainwater and stormwater accessible to irrigate and drought-proof green open spaces;
• Protecting the health of our waterways, wetlands and bays;
• Reducing flood risks through rainwater and stormwater harvesting;
• Increasing sewerage connections and improving septic management for a healthier environment;
• Connecting people with waterways, wetlands and green spaces; and,
• Using recycled water in agriculture to support food security and economic prosperity.

“This draft plan addresses climate change, urbanisation, population growth, greater demands for food and changing land use,” the statement said. “It brings together the Shire, collaborative partners and our communities in overcoming current and future challenges in line with local and State Government directions.”

Mayor Despi O’Connor said: “Climate change, population growth and urbanisation are presenting challenges to water management. Through our draft Integrated Water Management Plan, we’re aiming to take on the challenges ahead to make sure our Peninsula is thriving, healthy and resilient.”

Community consultation closes on Sunday, October 17. You can have your say online or by emailing water@mornpen.vic.gov.au with the subject line ‘Integrated Water Management Plan’.
