The Environment Agency has recently completed the first phase of the Oxford Flood Risk Management Strategy which seeks to reduce flood risk to 3,600 homes and businesses. This includes £2.5million of investment in de-silting channels, increasing the capacity of structures and providing temporary defences. The Environment Agency is working with Oxford City Council, Oxford Flood Alliance and Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership to assess technical solutions and funding options for reducing flooding in Oxford.
