Mornington Peninsula Classification

Reclassify the Mornington Peninsula during COVID-19 restrictions.

The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the hardship that many residents and businesses of the Mornington Peninsula have experienced during COVID-19 as a result of being classified as Metropolitan Melbourne, rather than Regional Victoria.

The Mornington Peninsula has recorded relatively low numbers of COVID-19 cases during this pandemic but have had to endure the harsh restrictions of Metropolitan Melbourne. Greater Geelong have averaged higher COVID-19 case numbers but have been able to enjoy a regional classification and as a result, residents have had a more flexible and less restrictive way of life.
