“The Cooling South Melbourne Strategy uses on the ground research, future climate projections, and leading-edge scenario modelling to test interventions on how to manage growth, while ensuring urban spaces are comfortable in the current and future conditions. Key recommendations regarding built form and public realm interventions, will not only inform the structure planning for South Melbourne but are applicable cross the whole of the municipality. An exciting model of dense and mixed urbanism that delivers outstanding community benefit, and its leader for others to emulate.”
