The Dunstan Park scheme will protect 512 houses and is being implemented north of Floral Way.

It involves constructing a basin and an embankment. 

This will control the main flood routes by slowing the release of water from the basin.

There are several other flood routes to the south which still leave south east Thatcham vulnerable to flooding. The surplus excavated material from the Dunston Park scheme will be used to construct the embankments for the South East Thatcham flood scheme.
