Cherwell District CouncilCherwell District Council

The Cherwell District covers almost 59,000 hectares of some of the most
beautiful areas of Oxfordshire, with the Cherwell and Ray valleys being
of particular interest from a biodiversity point of view.


Activities and services


The current Rural Strategy was published in 2009 and provides a
framework for improvement and support across Cherwell's rural
communities and countryside.

The current Cherwell BAP covers the period 2005-2010 and identifies a
set of actions needed to protect and enhance habitats and species that
are particularly important in the district. As Cherwell District
Council owns and manages less than 5% of the district, the funding of
biodiversity partner organisations that can directly influence
management of priority habitats and species has been key to the delivery
of the BAP.
