The effects from the River Wharfe: Insurance renewal after flooding

Tadcaster Flood Action Group work with the agency's, councils and the government to help prepare and protect for future flooding.

10 months after the floods, reports have been received about "increased insurance premiums and a lack of flood cover" for the properties who have flooded or live in the LS24 area. This brief survey aims to collect data in relation to insurance renewals. The information received will be submitted to the government if a problem is identified, in hope that something can be done.

All data will remain confidential and only used for the purpose intended. Once all data is received the group will organise an event where group discussion can take place.
