New Action Plan to Give Owners Advice & Better Protection from Flooding

floodresilienceplan

This independent action plan report aims to help people protect their homes and businesses from the risk of flooding and also to recover more quickly if the worst happens.

The Property Flood Resilience Action Plan explores the role of building regulations and certification, in encouraging use of flood resistant construction methods and how rigorous independent standards can help to establish confidence in flood products.

It considers ways in which insurers can offer greater support for property owners installing flood resistant measures, particularly at the repair stage with advice targeted at home owners, business owners and third parties such as insurers.

A one stop advice portal, www.centre4resilience.org, has been established to make it easier to find the most relevant information on better protecting your home or business against flooding.

The advice includes precautionary actions to take to better protect property from flooding, actions to take if a property is in imminent danger from flooding, live flood warnings, recent case studies and research.
