The Somers Residents Association (SRA) is an incorporated, not-for-profit, voluntary organization. Our role is to liaise and lobby where necessary, with representatives from the Mornington Peninsula Shire, Victorian State and Federal Governments and relevant business leaders, on behalf of the community. Membership is open to full or part-time residents living within postcode 3927.
Located 72 km south east of Melbourne on the shores of Western Port Bay, Somers is located off the main road from Melbourne to Flinders.
Surrounded by sea, wineries, farmland and nature reserves, Somers is both an attractive destination for holiday makers and an excellent place to live for those who value a quieter lifestyle. Its semi isolation makes Somers a special place that retains an essentially rural character despite its proximity to Melbourne.

Provide feedback to the Shire about its -“Pedestrian-Access Strategy”
The SRA has only recently been made aware of this document and as a priority we want to inform the community, because Somers is listed as one of the villages named.
We have been informed that it has nothing to do with the current survey and does not include “traffic flow etc.
This is a chance to “have your say” so do not miss out.
Submissions close July 20th
In response to a request from MPS Council for their 2018-19 budget the SRA forwarded 2 submissions: –
1 An allowance to reconstruct and make safe Sandy Point Road, from the intersection of South Beach Rd to the intersection of Lord Somers Rd.
2 Undertake a study and draft revegetation plan for Somers, along Sandy Point, Lord Somers and Camp Hill roads.
We have recently heard that these submission will not be approved in the next budget however it is certainly worth continuing to submit requests as this was the way funding was obtained by the SRA for the improvement to Tasman Road and the Coolart Road bend near the Lord Somers camp.
