Following the public consultation the National Review Group (NRG) of the Environment Agency, an internal EA group, is considering the major long-term flood scheme for Oxford, the Oxford Flood Risk Management Strategy (OFRMS). A presentation, which we contributed to by helping with video clips, was made today. As soon as we hear the outcome we will let you know. Even if they give the ok, the scheme will still be a long way from being confirmed. There will be further detailed design work, more public consultation and then the biggest hurdle, submission to the government of the day for funding.
