Oxley Park, Milton Keynes (Parkman)
The Oxley Park ‘grid square’ lies on the western edge of Milton Keynes. A senior member of SYSTRA’s Consultancy team, whilst in a previous post with another company, led the design and construction oversight of the trunk drainage that serves the development, comprising 300+ homes, a primary school and local shop cluster. The project also required realignment of a small stream as part of the landscaping of the local centre and school area. The surface drainage is based around a series of small SuDS basins serving different parts of the site, using swales for some of the conveyance links and cascaded basins to suit the site topography. Those features are now managed by the MK Parks Trust.
