How do you keep cool on hot days?

Council is participating in a research project led by the University of New South Wales (UNSW), in partnership with state and local governments, developers and industries, and the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) on the Urban Heat Island Effect. 

The Urban Heat Island Effect describes the temperature difference between cities and their rural surrounds. Cities are often warmer due to the increased presence of dense and dark surfaces (e.g. roads and rooftops) that absorb heat, over vegetation and waterways that act to shade and cool areas.

The 10-15 minute survey seeks to better understand the problems you experience during heat waves, the infrastructure and services in your area that help you cope with this heat, and your views and recommendations for any future improvements.

This survey has now closed.
