About Us

Following the announcement of Chalgrove Airfield being South Oxfordshire District Council’s preferred option for a New Town, the Chalgrove Airfield Action Group formed with the primary purpose of supporting Chalgrove’s response to the consultation.

Our mission now is to help Chalgrove and surrounding villages and hamlets to find sustainable alternatives to excessive local development. We want to ensure that our elderly residents and children not only have access to affordable homes, but also have somewhere to live that provides a safe environment without excessive and unnecessary traffic and associated pollution.

For more information, keep checking the website or email contactus@chalgroveshield.org.uk

How can you help?

Keep informed by signing up to our email newsletter at the bottom of the page. We will only email you about the development and not pass your details on to anyone else.

Write to our local MP – John Howell either by email: howelljm@parliament.uk or by writing to PO Box 84 Watlington, Oxfordshire, OX49 5XD – Please include your address when writing to him

Let us know your thoughts by emailing: contactus@chalgroveshield.org.uk

Most importantly remember to respond to the next consultation in March. We will be publishing advice and tips on how to respond so please keep visiting our website for updates and sign up to our email newsletters using the form at the bottom of the page.

Fund Raising. As you can appreciate what we do costs money and as we are a group of volunteers campaigning for Chalgrove and the surrounding villages we need your support to give the best possible. So we have teamed up with make-a-donation.org where you can make safe and secure online donations to help our cause. Please give generously and make a difference.

Funds raised will go towards gathering evidence, such as paying for independent traffic and ecological surveys, producing future newsletters and any future legal challenge. If there are any funds left once the process is complete, they will be donated to the Chalgrove 200 club for distribution to local groups.
