BIBA visits flood properties a year on from storm Eva

Written by staff reporter

One year on from storm Eva, the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) is set to meet businesses affected by last year’s floods in Cumbria to discuss the lesson learned, resilience and resistance measures and outline a new insurance product that could help protect against future storms.

BIBA’s Head of Public Affairs, Andy Thornley, will be meeting businesses with their local MP and Shadow Flood Minister Sue Hayman, along with representatives from the Environment Agency. The meeting follows the launch earlier this month of BIBA’s new insurance product that will include flood cover for many commercial premises and let properties located in areas at risk from flooding.

Thornley said: “There are many businesses across the country that have been unable to find insurance because of multiple flooding issues. Our aim is to provide a solution to as many businesses as possible. One year on, we’re hoping to help local businesses and talk about how BIBA’s new solution will recognise the resilience and resistance measures that have been, and can be, taken to help them cope should flooding occur again.”
