Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

Join the rest of the motu on October 28 by taking part in our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, ShakeOut. Signing up only takes 2 minutes and when you do, you’ll be entered to win a personal emergency grab bag or civil defence wheelie bin kit from NZ Civil Defence.
ShakeOut takes place around the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake:

DROP - down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.

COVER - your head and neck (or entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD - on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.

Head to www.shakeout.govt.nz... to sign up today and get involved!

Noisy overnight Road works on Dominion Road expected to last 16 continuous nights

Nanette from Mount Roskill

Furthermore, they apparently don't have a permit to do this work. Yesterday, I called the Auckland Council after having absolutely no sleep on Sunday night due to these road works. I was informed that the Road work company did not have a permit to do this work and that it is expected to carry on for 16 nights. Auckland council assured me I could contact noise control if they continued to work at nights and they would help sort this out. When the road workers started working the second night (Monday night), I contacted Noise Control as advised and I was informed that there was nothing they could do as the noise was not continuously excessive. However, the noise gets extreme at intermittent times. It feels like toture to have to spend the next 14 nights without sleep. People who work are not able to sleep during the day. Does anyone have any ideas on how this can be sorted out?
