Urban Heat Survey

Submissions closed on 17 March 2024, 11:59 PM


It is important that our community plans ahead and prepares for extreme heat, so we can all stay safe.

As such, the City of Ryde invites you to complete the Urban Heat Survey, so we can better understand how prepared our community is to manage very hot days and heatwaves, and how we can best support our residents.

Hot days are defined as days of 35+ degrees temperatures. Heatwaves are defined as three or more days in a row when both daytime and nighttime temperatures are unusually high.

The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

To thank you for your time, you can have the chance to win one of two $100 Anystore Gift Cards by completing the survey online. Terms and conditions apply.
