Northway and Marston Flood Alleviation Scheme- Design Consultation

The Northway and Marston Flood Alleviation Scheme is a £2.2 million project which will reduce the flood risk to 110 properties in the Northway and Marston wards, East Oxford.

The work will see natural embankments and dwarf walls installed, as well as the brook re-aligned and a wetland reserve created to use as temporary flood storage.

You can read more about the project on our webpage:

On that webpage you can also view the artist impressions of what the scheme could look like when complete.

It is a good idea to have a look at this webpage and the artist impressions before answering the questions in this consultation.

There are 6 multiple choice questions in this consultation and it will take you approximately 5 - 10 minutes to complete. 

Your views will inform decisions on the final design for this project. These final designs will then be taken forward to Planning.
