The homes and communities we build today will shape not only the look of our towns, cities and villages in the future, but the way in which we live our lives, the community spirit we foster and even our health, wellbeing and happiness.

Our sense of community and the open space on our doorsteps are more important to us now than ever. Creating a strong sense of place is key to our wellbeing, and public open space, community links and local walks and cycleways are all important considerations in the design of new developments.

For CALA, our approach is to create more than just a collection of homes; it’s about designing vibrant new communities that form an integral part of the local areas in which we build. It is also about understanding how people live and ensuring that careful thought has been given to all aspects of a modern and sustainable lifestyle, including local amenities, employment and access to public transport and road networks.

Of course, a commitment to placemaking does not mean a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Every development is unique, and each development setting requires a bespoke approach.

We’re proud to declare our Hampton Lakes development one of the most attractive and desirable locations in Peterborough. Offering the best of both worlds with nearby countryside yet great city transport links, the word ‘community’ is exactly what we’re creating. With 350 contemporary two bedroom apartments and two to five-bedroom homes intricately designed around open parkland, lakes and Hampton Wildlife Nature Reserve in the popular Hampton Heights, close to Hampton Vale.

As a growing community hub, a new Costa coffee house and a new Greene King pub are both within walking distance at Hampton Centre. A little further out but within 1.5 miles, residents will have easy access to Hampton Vale where they will find a GP, dentist, pharmacy, various takeaways and convenience stores, plus a further pub.

For those aspiring for countryside living and downtime from the busy working week, Hampton Lakes is surrounded by nature, peace and tranquillity. Equally, the development is five miles from Peterborough providing a busier pace for those who like having the hustle and bustle of the city just a short journey away.

Easily accessible to nearby cities for both business and pleasure purposes, the vibrant neighbourhood has plenty going on to keep people of all ages and interests entertained. Hampton Lakes is considered one of the most environmentally-sustainable communities in the region, enjoying an enviable reputation for both safety and easy access, giving homeowners a sense of solace and contentment.

At Hampton Lakes, our vision is to create a unique sense of place and a new community where people will be proud to live, for many generations to come.
