NHPC Planning Committee submitted an objection to the current plans for the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme.
SUMMARY OF RESPONSE
1.1. North Hinksey Parish Council (NHPC) OBJECTS to the current plans for the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme, MW.0027/22. Although NHPC recognises the need for flood alleviation measures and supports many aspects of the scheme it does not agree the excavation of a large secondary channel as detailed in the proposal is necessary or desirable.
1.2. NHPC hopes the scheme will be revised, eliminating the secondary channel and modifying remaining elements as necessary.
1.3 NHPC recognises the interconnected nature of communities and the environment and has chosen not to limit its comments to matters within North Hinksey Parish.
1.4 NHPC also has concerns about the independence of the planning process for this application and the economic case for the scheme.
