November 2019 flooding insurance reports

An independent review following reports that many of those affected by the November 2019 flooding did not have insurance cover.

Terms of reference for the flood insurance review. The review will look at evidence relating to insurance cover for those affected in Doncaster following the November 2019 floods. It will consider barriers they may have faced in obtaining insurance and whether there are any systemic issues in the provision of flood insurance. Where necessary, it will consider actions relevant for future flood events.

We expect the review to complete by the end of September 2020 and report shortly after.

The review is to be led by the former chair of the Association of British Insurers and former Chair of the Insurance Fraud Bureau, Amanda Blanc. Amanda has commercial experience and a background in general insurance and retail. Amanda also understands the role of Flood Re.
