Allotment Survey

Hoveton Parish Council (HPC) has been approached by Horning Parish Council (Horning PC) with a proposal to create a possible allotment partnership between the two councils. Horning PC has about an acre of allotment land that has recently become available and would like to formalise the ability of Hoveton parishioners to become tenants.

Hoveton doesn’t have any allotments and in the past few years HPC has only received a few enquiries on this subject from residents, so the provision of allotments hasn’t been pursued. However, following Horning PC’s proposal, HPC has agreed to survey the residents of Hoveton to establish whether or not there is sufficient interest within the village to pursue the idea of a partnership with Horning PC.

Horning PC intends to ring-fence 15 plots for Hoveton parishioners, who will be given priority for these plots. Each of these plots is a minimum of 125m2, which is half of a standard 10 pole allotment. Allotment tenants will pay an annual charge of £20 per half plot to Horning PC, who will oversee the management and administration of the allotments. The allotments are located in Upper Street, Horning. On-site parking is allowed for, and the allotments are north of two bus stops.

If you live in Hoveton and would be interested in taking on an allotment in Horning, please contact Hoveton Parish Council via Cllr Alex Howe ([email protected], 01603 783096 or 07702 607130) by Monday 1st March. Please provide your name, address and a contact telephone number/email address. Hoveton Parish Council thanks you for taking part. Please be assured that your personal details will not be used for anything other than this survey.
