Concerns Raised Over Flood Insurance Costs In Kildare

: 06/24/2018 - 14:15

KCC has been urged to contact insurance providers operating in Kildare to raise the issue of the apparent misinterpretation of the current Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management Studies (CFRAMS) maps by the insurance industry.

A motion by Fine Gael Councillor Tim Durkan, has called on the council to intervene on the issue and will be heard at this weeks meeting of KCC.

(CFRAMS) is a nationwide programme, which studies flood prone or risk areas and concerns are being raised over insurer’s use of this information to impose prohibitive costs on households.
