RAF Brize Norton Runway maintenance work

RAF Brize Norton will be undertaking essential maintenance to its runway, which is currently planned to commence on Friday 20 March until Sunday 3 May 2020 (weather dependent).


The work will be undertaken on Friday and Saturday nights between the hours of 1900 - 0700 hrs.


RAF Brize Norton would like to apologise in advance for any disturbance caused to our neighbours; they take their responsibilities to the local community very seriously indeed and would prefer not to cause any disturbance to those on the ground.

Flooding advice

When the Environmental Agency issues a flood alert due to an imminent risk of flooding, West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC) provides sandbags free of charge. They will deliver sandbags to vulnerable residents at times of need. To arrange collection of ready-made sandbags from Witney, please call: 01993 861000.


If residents would like to be extra prepared, the district council will deliver sandbags outside of a flood warning for a fee or residents can fill sandbags themselves at WODC depots across the area.


The council’s out of hours emergency service number is 0151 343 2945. Sign up for the Environmental Agency’s free flood alert service on 0345 988 1188.


If you are affected by flooding and are in need of temporary accommodation, please call WODC on 01993 861000.


More information around flood prevention and support for those affected by flooding in West Oxfordshire can be found on the WODC website at
