2024-25 Council Budget

Council is changing the way it engages with the community in relation to the preparation of the annual budget. This year, Council will shift to a single engagement period prior to the preparation of the budget, seeking submissions from the community beginning in November.

This earlier engagement process will allow Council to be better informed of residents’ priorities within the context of the Council Plan 2021-2025, prior to the development of the budget.

Residents can participate in the budget engagement process by filling out the online submission form or completing a paper-based form available at our Brown Street customer service centre.

Submissions close Wednesday 31 January at 5pm.

Revitalising Hamilton CBD - Share your ideas

The Hamilton CBD Streetscape Revitalisation Project is set to transform the heart of our city, focusing on CBD streets between Kennedy and Cox; and French and Lonsdale Streets. This ambitious project aims to enhance the streets and public spaces, benefiting residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

The initiative stems from the Hamilton Structure Plan, prepared for the Council in 2012, and the Hamilton CBD Masterplan in 2020. It aligns with other significant projects like the New Hamilton Gallery and the Community and Government Hub Build, creating a comprehensive vision for a vibrant and thriving CBD.

Now we need your help - To ensure this project reflects the desires and aspirations of our community, we invite your active participation. If you have seen amazing street furniture, captivating public art, or engaging street activations during your travels
across the country, we encourage you to share your discoveries with us.

Together, we can co-create a revitalised CBD that reflects our collective vision for our community!
