The Overheating Adaptive Opportunities, Actions and Barriers Survey Tool (OAST) was developed specifically for the research presented in: Wright, D. L., Haines, V. J., & Lomas, K.J. (2018). Overheating in UK homes: Adaptive opportunities, actions and barriers, in Proceedings of the 10th Windsor Conference: Rethinking thermal comfort, Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, UK, 12-15 April 2018. <br><br>The items selected for inclusion in the OAST were compiled from the Energy Use Follow-Up Survey (Hulme, Beaumont and Summers, 2013), the English Housing Survey (Department for Communities and Local Government, 2015), DEFRA nuisance smells guidance (Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs, 2015) and the AECOM guidance for typical noise levels and subjective evaluation (AECOM, 2010) as well as other study-specific items. Completion of the survey was supported using secondary data, such as digital maps (Alphabet, 2017) to ascertain roof type if not clearly visible when on site and the orientation of the main façade, and estate agent websites to research construction date of dwellings.<br>
