PUBLIC MEETING 6:30 - 8:00pm Fri 19th Nov
West Oxford Community Centre, (WOCA) Botley Road
Will it really save my home from flooding? Does it reflect current research and the cutting edge of flood management as we deal with the extreme weather of the climate crisis?
Can we afford to lose thousands of trees, hectares of unique meadowland and miles of hedgerows that may take 100 years to replace as we face mass extinction and biodiversity loss? What are the alternatives? Is it value for money? What is the carbon cost?Is it responsive enough to deal with a dramatically increased risk of flooding due to climate change? What about balancing risks of drought?
