Hoveton Parish Council is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our most dearly beloved monarch, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. For all of our lives, Queen Elizabeth has led our country with devotion and dignity, and has earned our heartfelt respect and affection. She has given us her all, and for that we are tremendously grateful. Her close and personal connection to Norfolk has been a source of great pride, and we are honoured that our County has been graced so frequently with her presence. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, who we hope can take some small comfort in knowing her passing will leave an irremediable void in her loyal subjects’ lives.
Chairman of Hoveton Parish Council – Cllr Russell Reeve
A Book of Condolence has been opened at Hoveton Church. There are Pages of Condolence to sign which will be sent from the Diocese after being bound into a book, so that our messages may go to the King. If anyone wishes to lay a floral tribute, you may also place these at the church.
A Book of Condolence is also being held by North Norfolk District Council and residents can email their message directly to [email protected]

Proposed Submission Version Local Plan – Consultation Extension
We are writing to inform you that the advertised deadline for responding to this consultation has been extended to midnight on Monday 7 March, 2022. If you have not yet had the opportunity to review the document and wish to comment on its soundness and/or legal compliance, please visit www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/localplanconsultation for further details.
How to respond
Responses should be submitted through the Consultation Portal using the standard response form provided to clearly explain each issue you wish to raise and how the Local Plan could be modified to address that issue. The response form is based on Planning Inspectorate guidance and sets out specific questions that will be addressed by the independent inspector who will be appointed to consider if the Plan is sound and legally compliant. For this reason it is important that the format is followed and the questions answered as fully as possible. Please note that a separate response should be made for each issue that you may wish to make a representation on.
Guidance Notes have been prepared to support this consultation. We strongly advise that these are read prior to making representations.
