2018 looks bright for the Hamptons

2018 looks bright for the Hamptons

2018 looks set to be another busy year for the Hamptons. Here are some of the exciting developments and community activities coming up.

Hamptons East is the next chapter in the Hamptons’ story. Made up of four villages -Hampton Beach, Hampton Gardens, Hampton Woods and Hampton Water - each has its own distinctive features.

Persimmon Homes continues its work at Hampton Gardens. This development has planning for 866 homes, with 80 homes already built and occupied. With its desirable location and practical transport links, Hampton Gardens is proving ideal for first time buyers and young families looking for a spacious new home.

The newest housebuilder is Barratt Homes, the first to build at Hampton Water. They are building 269 new homes, with the first hoping to be completed by July this year.

Award winning and innovative property development company Hearne Holmes Ltd, has recently submitted planning permission for two select hamlets of 25 and 15 units respectively in the country parks area and next to the cricket pitch. Bovis Homes has also recently submitted a planning application for 327 homes in the second phase of Hampton Waters.

New homes and facilities continue to be built in Hampton Vale.

Cala Homes is nearing the end of its first Hampton development, with 106 of the 125 homes in ‘The Mallards’ development already sold. O&H is also opening a new sports playing field near to this site.

Nearer to Hampton centre, Abbey Homes has built 58 of 130 planned homes. Within easy walking distance of Serpentine Green Shopping Centre, the site, known as Cumberland Place, consists of apartments, one, two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Next door the superstructure of Cranberry Court is nearing completion, 44 retirement living flats in the McCarthy and Stone development which share a boundary with the recently opened “Mulberry Tree Farm”, a Green King Farmhouse pub and restaurant.

Hampton Festival

The Hampton Festival is back for 2018. Peterborough Presents and Vivacity are working on plans for this year’s festival and are inviting people from the Hamptons to get involved by joining the Festival Panel Team.

An interest in arts and creativity is helpful but there’s no need for previous experience in organising festivals or events. The key is a willingness to help create something worthwhile for the local community.

Community groups such as the Women’s Institute, Scouts, Brownies etc are encouraged to get involved.

If you would like to get involved, please contact Josie Stone at

O&H will be supporting the festival again so keep an eye out for an update on plans here.

Happy in the Hamptons

Continuing the community spirit and reminiscing on the Hamptons 20th anniversary, it has been heartening to hear positive comments from local people about why they love living here.

Here’s just a few:

“I have travelled the world but this is one of the best moves I have ever made.”

“I have returned to the Hamptons with my own family.”

“Some awesome memories of growing up in Hampton. I love how as adults we are still here with our own houses.”

Residents have also been reminiscing about the early pioneering days when the first houses were occupied in the reclaimed landscape.

“Good memories from Hampton.”
