The few allotments that exist in Harberton are owned by a local estate and managed by Michelmore Hughes in Totnes, tel. 01803 865116 (at the last check, the person dealing with this there was a Louise Wellington.) There is probably a waiting list.


Coal deliveries

A J Gibbons from Bovey Tracey (same company as ran the coalyard by the station in Totnes until summer 2006) operates a fortnightly, free delivery service to Harberton, with no minimum order quantity. The delivery dates usually coincide with Grey Bin collection dates in most of the Harberton area (see Refuse/recycling). They also pass through Harberton on other days (Mon/Tues) and would provide free delivery for 5 pre-packed 25kg sacks or 2 open loose sacks (50kg) on those days. (We're also told that they sift out coal dust from loose deliveries.) Any other deliveries would attract a delivery charge. Their contact number is 01626 834449. (Delivery conditions may change.)


Conservation area

The old centre of Harberton is a designated Conservation Area. This has various implications concerning planning matters, work on trees etc. within this area. The boundary of this area, illustrated in red below, can also be seen along (with various other information) at different zoom levels by using South Hams District Council's interactive mapping service at:
According to information supplied, the conservation area was registered in 1976 (26th October) and was subsequently extended on 03/10/1985 and further extended on 03/09/1992.
