Hoveton Parish Council is keen to consult with local residents in order to gather views on the positive and negative aspects of life in Hoveton, and to determine how and where changes can be made to improve quality of life for all. In the near future, your Council will be updating its five-year Parish Plan, which outlines the Council’s vision and key priorities for Hoveton.
However, the Parish Plan is also designed to reflect the thoughts, feelings and ideas of local residents. Therefore, your help is needed if the Parish Plan is to be a true reflection of life in Hoveton; past, present and future. What would you like to see included in the new Parish Plan? What do you think your Parish Council’s priorities should be in the future? What is your vision for Hoveton? This is a wonderful opportunity to contribute your views and suggestions, so please do get in touch with us. Please contact Cllr Martin Richmond with your feedback (01603 781 573 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment below.
Last winter, Granary Staithe looked particularly festive thanks to the introduction of the village’s first community Christmas tree. This year, your Parish Council is hoping to repeat its Christmas tree project and once again add some extra sparkle to Hoveton’s Christmas. Local residents and businesses are encouraged to support this project (a big thank you to The Wroxham and Stobart & Hurrell, who are already supporting this project), so please contact Cllr Alex Howe (email@example.com or 01603 783 096) if you can help in any way.
While reports earlier this year suggested Broadland District Council was planning to either repair, replace, or remove the footbridge leading across the main road from Hoveton and Wroxham railway station to the Bure Valley Railway, Hoveton Parish Council is pleased to report that the Bure Valley Railway has confirmed this bridge won’t be removed, though maintenance work will be carried out to address the bridge’s corrosion problems. And in further good news, Bure Valley Railway has advised the Parish Council that it is due to take over maintenance responsibilities for the Bure Valley footpath alongside the railway.
