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!
As regular readers of this website will know, The Broads Centre (Hoveton’s ‘shopping precinct’) will soon have a whole new look, with work due to begin in the coming months on new and improved hard and soft landscaping – including new surfaces, seating, and planters. Hoveton’s Granary Staithe, which provides a key entrance to The Broads Centre, will be receiving an exciting makeover too as part of this work, including the replacement of gravel areas with a more durable resin surface and the introduction of some new street furniture, though the Staithe will retain its own unique identity and look.
Work on these improvements was scheduled to begin on 16th September, but this start date has since been delayed due to problems with the supply of materials. At the time of writing, no new date has been confirmed for this work to begin, but it is hoped the work will soon be underway and, all being well, that it will possibly be completed in time for Christmas. There may be a small amount of disruption while the work takes place, with access to Granary Staithe likely to be restricted at times, but your Parish Council is in close contact with the developer responsible for these works and will do its best to ensure local residents and business owners are kept updated.
Hoveton Parish Council receives regular newsletters and reports from the Stalham Safer Neighbourhood Team and works closely with members of the team on local issues. Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP) meetings are held regularly to agree local policing priorities, along with regular Public Engagement meetings and surgeries.

Norfolk County Council’s next household hazardous waste days were recently announced, with seven events planned across Norfolk in September and October. Waste is classed as hazardous if it can cause harm to humans or the environment (this includes any waste that needs specialist disposal). Norfolk County Council doesn’t normally take these items at its recycling centres, but certain hazardous waste items will be accepted at the upcoming free household hazardous waste days, including paint, household chemicals and cleansers, and garden pesticides and fertilizers.
Hoveton’s nearest participating recycling centre is Mayton Wood Recycling Centre (Little Hautbois, Nr Coltishall, NR12 7JX) and Mayton Wood’s household hazardous waste days will take place on 20th, 21st, and 22nd September between 9am and 5pm. Further details can be found on Norfolk County Council’s website.
