Share your ideas to shape Hume's future

Hume City Council sought ideas from the community about what will make Hume a great place to live, learn, work and play in the future.

The ideas shared, along with what we've heard through previous consultations, will help a Community Panel, made up of 46 Hume community members, to write a Community Vision for Hume City. The Community Vision will describe a future the Hume community want to achieve together, and will guide all of Hume City Council’s work.

The ideas you shared will also be used to ensure the 4-year Council Plan and budget, and the 10-year financial and asset plans reflect the expectations and priorities of the Hume community.

You made this Vision truly representative of the diverse Hume community, as we heard from people who live, learn, work or play in Hume City.

What are the stages of the consultation process?

There are four stages in the process of creating a Community Vision. Broad community engagement is designed to gather a large number of ideas, opinions and dreams for a wide variety of people. This feedback is gathered and collated to summarise what you told Council.

A panel made up of randomly selected community members is brought together to look at and consider the feedback. They are responsible for writing the Community Vision. Their draft Vision is then put out to the community for input. The Panel's final workshop with consider this feedback and they will finalise the Community Vision. The last stage involves adoption of the Vision at a Council meeting.

What is happening now?

A Community Panel was chosen from over 300 Hume community members who expressed an interest in being part of a group who would write Hume Council's new Community Vision. They were randomly chosen to be representative of the community on a number of characteristics. This deliberative panel is currently meeting, and they are considering all of your feedback and are working together to create a vision for the future the community want to achieve together.

After they have finalised their draft Community Vision it will go out to Hume's community so that you can give feedback. In their final workshop on 21 August the Panel will review all of your feedback and agree to changes to the draft Vision.

The final Community Vision will be presented to Council for adoption by 31 October 2021.
