A working group which includes representatives from the Government, the Environment Agency, the insurance industry and other organisations is looking at a range of potential flood insurance models for the future.

These discussions include the role that specialist brokers can play in helping people at high flood risk to access insurance, the potential role of local authorities, and various pooling arrangements for flood risk. Further details on the models that have been considered to date will be provided in the working group's interim report, which is due to be published shortly.
