A survey of Oxfordshire’s Town and Parish Councils, 2021
Findings show that at least 17% of towns and parishes in Oxfordshire experience flooding problems and at least 20% of towns and parishes experience issues with sewage/sewerage infrastructure.
CPRE Oxfordshire wants to see:
• Thames Water setting out clear measures to address the issues raised in this report, including targets and investment commitments.
• Local MPs supporting the Sewage (Inland Waters) Bill and the Environment Bill to ensure water companies are legally bound to stop discharging raw sewage into the ocean and rivers.
• Oxfordshire Plan 2050 to ensure all new developments demonstrate that their associated infrastructure will either maintain or improve water quality, not add to the risk of flooding, and be in place before the site is occupied.
• The river Thames to achieve Bathing Water designation.
CPRE Oxfordshire has produced an interactive map highlighting where the issues are, view the map and download the report from our website: www.cpreoxon.org.uk
