What is the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme?

The Environment Agency are working together with 9 organisations dedicated to reducing Oxford’s flood risk and providing wider benefits to Oxfordshire. The Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme is designed to cope with floods of a major scale, to help protect the city in coming decades as flood risk increases with climate change. The scheme forms part of a wider programme to improve flood resilience being planned by the Environment Agency across the Thames Valley area.
