Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has resolved to seek the appointment of a Panel to consider the Planning Scheme Amendment C209 to the Mornington Peninsula Planning scheme and the submissions made in response to it.
If approved, Amendment C209 will facilitate the redevelopment of the Sorrento Ferry Terminal to include a new Terminal Building (comprising a maritime museum, licensed lounge / café tenancies, and retail), reconfigured vehicle access and traffic works, new car parking, landscaping and public realm works.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Council also requested that the Panel be appointed as an Advisory Committee under section 151 of the Act to consider traffic for the Sorrento Ferry Terminal; including future traffic improvements between the terminal and the Sorrento town centre.
The Minister for Planning consequently appointed the Panel members as an Advisory Committee and provided Terms of Reference dated 29 June 2017. These set out the matters to be considered beyond the Amendment.
