Preparing or designing your home for extreme weather – more frequent with climate change –
advice from 3 experts and discussion on getting ready for floods, droughts & heatwaves:
‘Improving your Home’s Flood Resilience’ with Emily Hutchinson, Senior Flood Risk Officer, Cambs County Council.
How to minimise the risk of flood damage. Even if your home is far from a watercourse, it may be vulnerable to surface-water flooding from intense downpours.
‘Drought-Resistant gardening’ with Dea Fischer, La Jardiniere Gardens.
Planning and looking after your garden, so your plants stay beautiful or productive in droughts, without using hose-pipes.
‘Staying Cool in a Heatwave’ with Tom Bragg, OEH Host.
How most of us can avoid dangerous over-heating at home – with clever shading, ventilation and other simple measures. But some badly-designed homes make this much harder – how to make the best of them.
