Winter Preparations



CPC has worked hard over the past months to get ready for these wintry conditions!

We now have many more salt bins located in the parish for use during these bad weather conditions, plus extra stock if needed to refill bins.

Please remember the salt in the bins is intended for use on the public highway and pavements only, and that bins have been sited in their locations for a specific reason.

There is no law against people clearing pavements or public spaces. Ministers have repeatedly welcomed "public-spiritedness" and said "common sense" and "benefit of the doubt" should always prevail when considering litigation.

Please help your neighbours and the elderly during these recent icy conditions. Thank you

CPC has spoken numerous times to OCC Winter Services about the service we get - we are very pleased that so far this year our service of gritting has been much improved.

Our Maintenance team work very hard from the early hours of each week day morning during these icy conditions, to get as much of the pavements cleared as possible for the main routes to schools, doctors and shops. Please support them in this work and try to clear some of the pavement outside your house if you can – this will greatly help the process of making our pavements safe to use.

If you know of someone in need during these poor weather conditions please contact CPC by email or phone (answer machine when closed) as we can arrange some assistance.

Alternatively please call the Chinnor Good neighbour Scheme on 01844 353500.


Please see below locations the salt bins are...

Henton –
• 1 at top by layby
• 1 at bottom of road by Peacock entrance

Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan – Review



Why Chinnor needs to undertake a Site Allocation review

In the closing stages of the preparation of Chinnor's Neighbourhood Plan - a Ministerial Statement called for Neighbourhood Development Plans to contain nominated development sites so as to strengthen the Plan. No selected sites were included in Chinnor NDP being that the two preferred sites (CHI 7 and CHI 8) plus one reserved site (CHI 20) had already been granted planning permission. As the Plans preparation was nearing completion and rather than delay submission for approval and referendum by adding selected development sites it was decided to complete the plan without allocated sites. The aim then was to review the Plan following adoption with the objective of incorporating allocated sites,  to meet this requirement, thus ensuring that the Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan would be amended to keep up to date with changes in the NDP process.  It was then understood that such a review would be a proportional task, requiring an amendment/update and not the production of a new plan.

Several positive meetings with SODC, Chinnor Parish Council and the Steering Group have now taken place, late in 2017 and in early 2018, and work has now commenced on the preparation of the Site Allocation requirement with the aim of meeting the required processes to get the review adopted at the earliest opportunity to gain the maximum control.
