The Environment Agency are working with 9 partners on a major new flood scheme for Oxford, which will reduce flood risk to homes, businesses and major transport routes into the city. The Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme will provide a long-term solution to flooding in Oxford, helping protect the city as flood risk increases with climate change.

You can read the planning application on Oxfordshire County Council’s online planning portal and enter the reference number: MW.0027/22.

Oxfordshire County Council will be holding an online consultation on the planning application from 7 April to 9 May.
