Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme Options Open for Consultation

Tuesday, 19 January, will mark the start of a 6-week public consultation on the proposed Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme that will reduce the risk of flooding to over 1,000 properties.

Five drop-in events will be held across Oxford to give local communities the opportunity to have their say on the future of the flood risk in Oxford.

Councillor Rodney Rose, Deputy Leader for Oxfordshire County Council, said: “Plans for the flood alleviation scheme are progressing well, and now is a good time to share all the work that has been done as part of the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme project since the last public events were held last summer.”

The flood alleviation scheme is our best opportunity of ensuring that we are able to prevent the River Thames from flooding in the Vale, and it’s very clear that we need a solution in place sooner rather than later,” added Councillor Matthew Barber, Leader of Vale of White Horse District Council.

“I urge residents to come along to the public events, they are a great opportunity to find out how they could be affected by the scheme and to give their feedback on options for a relief channel.”

All public events will be open from 2:30pm to 7pm in the following locations:

  • Tuesday, 19 January, Oxford Town Hall, OX1 1BX;
  • Wednesday, 20 January, Abbey House, Abingdon, OX14 3JE;
  • Friday, 22 January, South Oxford Community Centre, OX1 4RP;
  • Wednesday, 27 January, Kennington Village Centre, OX1 5PG;
  • Thursday, 28 January, West Oxford Community Centre, OX2 0BT.
