ABI Comment on the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill

James Dalton, Director of General Insurance Policy, has commented on behalf of the sector following the introduction to Parliament of a Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities; 

As an industry we have long been calling for more robust planning policy around development in flood risk areas and increasing our resilience to climate related flood risk.

The measures in the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill, introduced to Parliament today, to put greater emphasis on environmental outcomes in the planning process and recognition of the need to protect areas at high flood risk areas are very welcome.

Adapting to climate change and managing flood risk is a challenge for the whole of our society and we look forward to working with Government and Parliament as the Bill progresses.

The ABI will continue to work with Government, Parliamentarians and wider stakeholders as the Bill progresses through the legislative process. For further information, please contact the Public Affairs Team

You can find more information and follow the Bill on the Parliament website
