Investigations Confirms Flood Relief Channel as Best Solution for Oxford

The Environment Agency early investigation on the Oxford flood alleviation scheme has confirmed that a flood relief channel is among the best solutions for the Oxford area.

The Environment Agency has therefore developed a series of channel options, based on their findings and the results of early public engagement about a potential scheme.

According to EA, after this consultation assessments were made which route will provide the best all-round solution to Oxford’s flooding problem.

They also took into account public opinion alongside the outputs of their assessment, which considers which options would be technically and economically feasible.

The Environment Agency recently unveiled all the comments received during the consultation.

Now they are working on the final design of the scheme. If approved, construction works on the project are planned to begin in 2018.
