Abstract

The mobility patterns and decisions of different age groups ahve important implications for the future sustainability of rural communities in Europe, North America and Australasia. This paper focuses on the migration patterns and decision-making of 50-64 year old migrants to peripheral rural areas of the UK. Pre-retirement migration has received little attention from academics and policy makers, yet is an important contributory factor to the demographic ageing of the countryside, especially remote and scenically attractive areas within Scotland, Wales and Northenr Ireland. Drawing upon an analysis of UK demographic data, this paper will explore the migration patterns of the pre-retirement age cohort. The community outcomes of theses migration patterns are then debated with reference to possible economic, social and environmental consequences. A particular research question addressed in this paper is: does an influx of pre-retirement migrants represent a burden or an asset to remote and peripheral areas?
