In response to the request for more Osney-focused discussion, the Environment Agency has organised an informal drop-in session at West Oxford Community Centre next Thursday 15 February.
Members of the Flood Alleviation project team will be available to discuss the scheme and how it will benefit/impact Osney Island.
The session will be 7.30–8.30 pm in the Mary Town room. You can come along at any time during this period and there will be people from the EA and OFA available to explain what is planned and to answer questions.
They apologise for the short notice but this was the best available date before Easter.
There was a story in the Oxford Mail today stating that the City Council has provided the outstanding funding required for the scheme to go ahead – really good news.
