Melrose Park: Smart Planning for Climate Responsive Neighbourhoods

Smart city Melrose Park


Over the next 10 years, a new residential precinct will be developed at Melrose Park.

The site offers the opportunity to pilot the use of a range of sensors to capture, analyse and visualise environmental data including temperature, humidity, air quality, noise and water run-off.

The data will provide useful information to monitor baseline environmental conditions at Melrose Park, prior to and during the early construction phase.

Smart sensors will be placed throughout the 30-hectare development site in Melrose Park to collect environmental data 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This will build powerful insights about the area.

This approach to smart environmental monitoring has the potential to be rolled out to other parts of the City of Parramatta as well as to other Councils.

The Melrose Park project was one of 81 projects funded by the Australian Government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program.

The project will run until June 2020.
