Rural Hume Integrated Growth Area Plan

The Rural HIGAP covers all land that falls outside the Urban Growth Boundary (excluding Melbourne Airport). It includes the areas of Oaklands Junction, Yuroke, Wildwood, Diggers Rest; the rural parts of Clarkefield; Greenvale and Sunbury, the Keilor area behind Melbourne Airport: and Bulla Township.

As part of the development of Rural HIGAP, Council has prepared an Emerging Issues and Options Paper. The Paper builds upon background studies and community responses to a survey conducted in mid-2017, which highlighted key areas of concern for Hume’s rural areas including agriculture, infrastructure and housing. The Paper analyses these key issues and provides options on how these issues might be addressed.

Council is seeking your feedback on the Paper and the options that have been developed. Your response will contribute towards the development of the draft Rural HIGAP Strategy. Further community input will be sought on the draft in 2019. For more information on how to make a submission, please click here.
