Melrose Park: Smart Planning for Climate Responsive Neighbourhoods

Smart Cities and Suburbs Program

In November 2018, Council was successful in receiving a Federal grant for the Melrose Park: Smart Planning for Climate Responsive Neighbourhoods project, through the Australian Government under the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program.

The Melrose Park project will pilot the use of a range of sensors to capture, analyse and visualise environmental data including temperature, humidity, air quality, noise, and stormwater. The data will provide useful information to monitor local environmental conditions.

The project is being run with a number of project partners including the University of Technology Sydney and PAYCE. An initial environmental device with multiple sensors and a gateway has been installed to allow messages to travel from the sensors.

This project will run until June 2020.
