COVID-19 impact on infringements

We understand the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on our community. We are therefore putting measures in place to support members of our community who have received infringement notices and are experiencing hardship.

Whilst your infringement may not be withdrawn as a result of the financial hardship caused by COVID-19, we are able to offer you an extension of time to pay until 30 September 2020. 

To apply for an extension if you are experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 click here.

In September, we will write to each person who has received this extension and provide more information about the options available at that time.  This could include a further extension of time to pay or an instalment plan.

All infringement holders have the following options available to them at any time:

  • Payment arrangement with Fines Victoria: A payment arrangement can allow a person with multiple fines from different enforcement agencies to pay by instalments or by an extended due date.  To apply for a payment arrangement, write to Council requesting that your infringement/s be referred to Fines Victoria.
  • Work and Development Permit (WDP): A WDP is an initiative to provide vulnerable and disadvantaged people with a non-financial option to address their fine debt.   For more information regarding this scheme, and to identify an accredited sponsor, please contact the WDP Operational Team on 1300 323 483 or go to the Fines Victoria website.

 

Payment plans - instalment plans

 

New plans

We are currently unable to offer any new instalment plans due to circumstances associated with COVID-19. Any person who applies for an instalment plan will instead be granted an extension of time to pay to 30 September 2020.

In September, we will write to each person who has received this extension and provide more information about the options available at that time.  This could include a further extension of time to pay or an instalment plan.

Current plans

With the closure of the Bartels Taylor and Associates office and the Hume Council Customer Service Centres, payment can no longer be made by phone or in person.  To continue to make payments in accordance with your payment plan schedule, you may send payment by cheque or money order, or pay online here

If paying online, you will need to change the "Amount to pay" to the payment instalment amount indicated on your payment plan schedule sent to you by Bartels Taylor and Associates.

If you are experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19 and are unable to make payments in accordance with your current payment plan schedule, please contact the Infringement Management Unit by email at contactus@hume.vic.gov.au or submit a hardship application above.  Your instalment plan will be cancelled and payment will be extended until 30 September 2020.  You will be contacted in September to advise of the options available at that time, which may be a further extension or the reinstatement of your instalment plan.
