We live in the charming lace network of streets of Osney and the neighbouring North Hinksey across the willows and millennial old flood meadows which ‘planners’ wish to separate with a 60 metre wide channel, spanned at Willow Walk by a vast bridge. The scheme, which involves the felling of thousands of trees, recalls the worst of the ‘function over form’ mindset of brutalist modern architecture, in an unproven effort to address floods which may not even work.

  • 133 acres

    This expensive scheme will ruin 133 acres of Greenbelt

  • 4000 Trees

    Up to 4000 trees removed, a fact hidden by the reference in the proposal

  • 40,000 trucks

    500,000 tons of sand and gravel at 25 tons per journey along the single track entry point

We are a group of concerned locals seeking information and research to combat the flooding issues. We are not Government funded and some professional input that we seek needs paying for. If you support the cause please also consider a donation using the Donate feature on this site.
