This website is administered by The Hampsthwaite Action Group which has been set up to communicate the collective views of the residents, and friends, of Hampsthwaite regarding the proposed developments in the village.

There are currently approximately 400 houses in the Village but with Grange Park and the other planned developments will almost double the size of the village.

We consider that this is unacceptable & we are currently co-ordinating plans & meetings to try and prevent this.

Outline planning granted

37 Houses at Brookfield Garth – full planning currently out for consultation.

Plans in the “pipeline”

83 houses + medical facility on Birstwith Road (as you leave the village) – HM9

5 houses on Church Lane (opposite the Church) in a field prone to flooding

90+ houses on Rowden Lane – HM 4 & HM5
