Government has called for insurers to offer discount premiums for homeowners but the industry has made demands, too.

    It would be handy too if the Queensland Government could override Council bylaws on height, toughen the Building code so that homes are more storm or cyclone resistant (and provide a subsidy to keep such costs down for any renovations), build levies in each town to the record height of their own flooding, demand greater capacity storm drainage systems for new developments, disallow any development in known flood plains, demand Councils increase maintenance of drainage systems in all urban areas and look to build more dams in water catchment areas to hold potential flood waters. Such measures are more likely to bring down the costs of insurance for flood. It is too easy for politicians to tell our industry what they should be doing when there is more their governments could do.
