Hoveton is designated as a Secondary Settlement with a Small Town Centre.

Development will be limited in scale to meet locally identified needs. The following development is proposed:

  • Between 2001 and 2021 a total of between 130 and 200 dwellings will be built. This will include 100 to 150 dwellings on newly identified development sites well related to the built up area. 
  • Approximately 10 hectares of land will be identified and retained for employment generating development.
  • All development must ensure no adverse effects on the Broads Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
