Council Priorities

Council is committed to making a positive difference to the lives of those who live, work and play in Hume. 

Hume is a diverse and vibrant community where our residents can choose between a rural or urban lifestyle. Being so diverse, our community's priorities and aspirations are continually evolving. Each year our Councillors (and the organisation) take time to review our plans for the future; making sure we provide the best possible services and infrastructure we can.  

To help set Council’s priorities for 2020/21 and beyond, we undertook a range of activities to seek your input, and to hear what you think we could be doing better, and what is working well in your local community.

There were a range of ways to get involved. This included:

Council were encouraged the community to submit ideas for infrastructure projects to be considered as part of the 2020/21 budget and beyond.

Using our interactive map, participants were able to let us know where physical improvements can be made on Council owned or managed land and buildings.

    The Hume Budget Simulator gives you the chance to better understand Council services and learn about how and where we spend money to support the Hume Community.

This consultation tool has now closed, and Council's research team will shortly begin the analysis and reporting of your feedback.

How is Council performing in delivering services to our community? This survey provides residents with the ability to let us know how we are going, and what you think we should be doing in the future.

This consultation tool has now closed, and Council's research team will shortly begin the analysis and reporting of your feedback.

  Thank you to all who participated and shared ideas for making Hume an even better place to live, work or play.
