Spring news 10 degrees hotter

Spring news  10 degrees hotter

We need State Government help. Opie Avenue is 10 degrees cooler 32°C than Park Street 42°C.  This story will be told in my Summer Newsletter  when I know the outcome of our Council's request to trial a planning rule in Unley requiring new developments to have 15% deep root zone and tree canopy cover when the trees are fully grown.         
  (Heat map data from Eastern and Northern Adelaide Collaborative Heat Mapping Project; 2018 aerial imagery)

 Unley cannot achieve our State Government 31% tree canopy target without a mandatory 15% minimum on new developments. Over 50% of Unley will be redeveloped in the next 25 years based on the rate of the past 5.

Please email me on to receive this newsletter four times only per year.
