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.

Canterbury, it’s time to get vaccinated.

An ambitious campaign has been launched to get 90 per cent of eligible Cantabrians jabbed by Labour Weekend – in less than four weeks time.

Businesses have thrown their weight behind the plan, which aims to make Canterbury the most Covid-19 protected region in the country.

Among those backing the campaign is Roger Gray, chief executive of Lyttelton Port Company (LPC), who said Cantabrians should “roll-up their sleeves and get vaccinated”.

A plan to cut down about 200 trees on an exclusive Christchurch golf course has triggered an emotive debate, dividing club members and residents.

Christchurch Golf Club has already started felling the trees, mostly pine and macrocarpa, at its course in Shirley after consulting arborists and its course committee. General manager Mike Hadley acknowledged the removal was a sensitive issue – some club members lobbied to retain them – but said the club wanted to restore the course to its links origins.

Links courses tend to be on or near a coast and feature dunes, undulating greens and few, if any, trees.

Mark Belton, managing director of Permanent Forests NZ Ltd, which specialises in growing forests for carbon sequestration and conservation, said the club could have consulted nearby residents about the tree removal.

“Urban planning and urban forests in National Park Christchurch needs to be carefully considered to get the right trees in the right places to create habitats for birds but that don't cause issues for neighbourhoods."
