Andy Webber made a presentation on behalf of OFA to the Oxford Area Flood Partnership (OAFP).
OFA’s principal message was to stress the importance of capitalising on the work already done in clearing the Seacourt/Hinksey Stream from the Botley Road to The Fishes in North Hinksey – and the work which has been or is about to be done to remove serious pinchpoints at Redbridge. The Hinksey Stream between these two areas must now be cleared of obstructions, so allowing the good work already done to have maximum benefit.
Our message was well received. The EA is a principal player in this – the local EA team agree how important this work is and are keen to see it done. Let us hope funding is made available.
