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 are undertaking 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. If you have an idea for the future, we would love to hear it. 

There's a range of ways you can get involved, you can chose to participate in one activity, or all of them. For further information, please see below:

  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.

'Create your Budget’ to get started and let us know what you think should be the priorities in the Council budget. 
    Council encouraged the community to submit ideas for infrastructure projects to be considered as part of the 2020/21 budget and beyond.

Use our interactive map to let us know where physical improvements can be made on Council owned or managed land and buildings. For instructions on how to use our interactive map, please click here to watch a short video.
