Green Cover Demonstration Project

The Government Architect’s Office has developed a demonstration design project that identifies achievable strategies for mitigating heat impacts by increasing urban green cover.

Green cover (including green roofs, green wall, canopy trees and groundcovers) can provide environmental, health and aesthetic benefits to communities. The strategies demonstrated by the project have potential to be implemented by NSW local councils and will assist community resilience to climate change.
