Press Release



From Chinnor Parish Council Chairman – Cllr Robin Williams

Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan went to referendum on the 7th September 2017 where the question was posed:

Do you want South Oxfordshire District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Chinnor to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

The outstanding result was:

Number cast in favour of a Yes    1744   96%

Number cast in favour of a No     77    4%

Turnout: 36.4 %

Chinnor Parish Council are delighted with this result and would like to thank all those residents who took part in the preparation of the Plan either by contributing to the Consultations or by participating in the preparation of the Plan itself and, of course, those who voted in the referendum.  Particular thanks must go to the Plan's Steering Committee who worked extremely hard in the preparation of the Plan over the last three years. Such a Plan would not have been achieved without their dedicated and tireless efforts – efforts which are greatly appreciated by the Council.

The Parish Council sees the Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan as a key opportunity to put localism into action, bringing forward a positive vision for our area which can be realised on the ground as decisions are made in the future.

We must now ensure that the Plan works in ensuring that Chinnor remains the delightful place it is without wanton but with sustainable development.

Cllr Robin Williams

Red Kite Radio



Red Kite Radio is your local community radio station. Broadcasting on 107.2 FM or via the web on you can listen any time. During the day, a variety of presenters – all volunteers – host their shows covering a wide variety of music and interviews. Throughout the night, the station broadcasts the best from the 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's.

Being a not-for-profit company, we are here to help promote community organisations, schools, clubs and projects. If you are part of a local group and want to promote an upcoming event, you can do this via the 'VoiceBox', a simple to use web based recording service, giving you the ability to talk about the group or event yourself.

We also offer a weekly "Takeover" show, where you can literally hijack the station for two hours. Either you, your group or band, your local soccer or cricket team can take part. You can tell the listeners all about how you got together, met or the things you do. What's more, you don't have to come into the studios, you can record the 'Links' on a phone, tablet or computer and email them in. We do the rest and assemble them together wish music and links into a show.

We are funded by advertising and sponsorship, all of which goes towards the running costs of the station. If you run a business and want to advertise with us, please get in touch via the contact form on the website or email

Please do not feed the Red Kites


The Chilterns Conservation Board urges the public not to feed red kites. They should be left to feed naturally in the wider countryside, thus enabling them to find a naturally sustainable level.

Red kites can survive well in the Chilterns without artificial feeding, so it is not necessary to supplement their diet. It is feared that providing too much additional food can prevent the population from spreading naturally and cause the birds to cluster in large numbers where food is offered.
