With news from a recent report that entire communities living by our coasts and rivers might need to move to avoid the increased risk of flooding that climate change will bring – what does this mean for our relocation shows like Escape to the Country, Location, Location, Location or A Place by the Sea ?
Could these shows start to factor in climate change predictions for the area? What will life be like for the people in these communities in 3, 5 or 10 years’ time?
Will increased flooding be a major issue? Should on screen discussions talk about the changes homeowners can make to their new homes to future proof them against risk? And what are the Government and local communities doing to combat these issues?
For people hoping to relocate, getting involved with the local community is always a priority, will local sustainability action groups be their way in?
