An overview of the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme
Thursday 28 September, 8pm
The Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme (OFAS) is subject to a Public Enquiry. Dr Tim King is an Oxford native, a scientist who grew up in North Hinksey. He has followed the OFAS for 11 years, its geography, hydrology, economics, biodiversity and planning applications. He has met both proponents and opponents. His main purposes in this talk are to explain the history of Oxford floods and the current Environment Agency proposal, and to discuss the Scheme’s strengths and weaknesses.
