PS: Below is a map produced by Monash Uni of Melbourne’s ‘vulnerable’ areas to heat exposure. Readers will see that Carnegie, major parts of Bentleigh East, and the Caulfield North areas even before the 2046 dwellings arrive as part of the Caulfield Village, are given the highest danger ratings. And all this whilst Glen Eira Council still refuses to introduce a Significant Tree Register that actually has some bite and prevents moonscaping. This map also highlights how planning has directly contributed to this via the inequities of Minimal Change versus Housing Diversity. See: http://www.mappingvulnerabilityindex.com/home/melbournevi
