Welcome to the website of Hoveton Parish Council. Here you’ll find further information about the work of the Parish Council and the services it provides, contact details for your local councillors, information about the parish of Hoveton, plus all the latest Council and community news. Whether you’re a resident of Hoveton or a nearby parish, a member of Hoveton’s workforce, a visitor to our village, or just an interested party, we hope you find this website useful and informative. And we look forward to welcoming you to a Hoveton Parish Council meeting soon!
Hoveton’s Parish Clerk will now be on annual leave until Monday 24th June. If you need the Council’s assistance while the Clerk is away, please contact a parish councillor.
Don’t forget to visit Granary Staithe on Sunday 16th June for our Charities Open Day. This fun, free event is a great opportunity to find out more about the work of local charities and community groups. Exhibitors due to attend include the Broads Society; the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust (who will be bringing a wherry into the Staithe’s dyke); Wroxham Bure Valley Rotary Club; and Hoveton Parish Council itself.
This event was sadly cancelled last year due to bad weather but, all being well, it should be taking place this year between 11am and 4pm. We hope to see you there!

Following a successful bid to the Parish Partnership Scheme, Hoveton Parish Council has arranged the installation of a new fingerpost sign in our village centre, to direct visitors to the village to amenities such as the tourist information centre, public toilets, village hall, and railway station.
The new sign is now in place near the junction of Station Road and the A1151 and Hoveton Parish Council would like to thank Norfolk County Council for its support of this project, and the Bure Valley Railway for its generous donation of £200 toward the cost of the sign.
