Rebuilding the stable door?

There was a piece on floods just now.

In it a pub was featured that had suffered £250k in damage, that had only just been put to rights.

Thing is, there was no mention of what preventative measures might have been put in place to help prevent a simple repetition of this process.

We have not yet been flooded here, and with luck will not be. But I am seriously looking at ways to allow for this possibility. Readers may recall an attempt I made at the time of the last floods to ask the authorities for guidance on how to avoid being a victim and claimant by simply protecting against it with suitable defences.

I still await any replies. Maybe compensation is deemed easier than cure?
