Update on Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme

The Environment Agency is working in partnership to develop proposals to reduce flood risk in Oxford.

Investigations have confirmed that a flood relief channel will bring significant flood relief benefits to Oxford.

The Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme project team have developed a series of options to construct new channels or enlarge existing channels in the western floodplain.

Between 19 January and 1 March 2016 the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme project team held 5 public events on the scheme.

The consultation provided the opportunity for the project team to understand the public’s preferred option for the route of the flood relief channel.

They are currently analyzing these options to help select a preferred option for the channel.

If the scheme is approved, construction is planned to start in 2018.
