Despite its position on major thoroughfares and close to major population centres, the pie chart shows that Charvil has retained a generally rural character
This is probably because the majority of the parish area is subject to flooding (including the nature and public access segment shown)
It is also apparent that very little of the parish that is not subject to flooding now remains undeveloped (10% of the parish). This lies in north Charvil and to the south of the railway bridge
Existing public facilities and services are shown in the maps.
