Gordon Hunt

I joined Oxfordshire County Council in 1969 straight from school as a junior technician, where I trained within the highway design section before spending 18 months on site on the extension of the A34 dual carriageway scheme. On returning to head office I joined the Drainage design team, where I have been for over 30 years.

I attended school in Oxford and attained my HNC in Civil Engineering at Oxford Polytechnic (Brooks University).

At the present time I manage the Drainage team, which undertakes the Counties Drainage Capital Program, trying to cope with the increased flooding within the County as well as checking and approving drainage designs for new developments. The County Council actively encourages Developers to use Suds Drainage systems on all developments, which the County will adopt on completion.
