Town of Hampton

is located 35 km northeast of Saint John, and is a small, friendly community with many points of interest and beautiful natural scenery. We are nestled on the Kennebecasis River, a tributary of the St. John River. The town’s rolling hills, waterways, farmland, wildlife and world-renowned marsh area reward visitors with a visual feast.

It's our nature!

2014 Nuisance Deer Harvest Permits

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is working cooperatively with our community to lower the deer numbers in a manner that is safe, effective and acceptable to most residents. Nuisance Deer Harvest Permits allow landowners within the Town limits to receive special permits authorizing hunters to harvest antlerless deer on their property. The permits are distributed to hunters chosen by the landowner. Permit numbers will be determined by DNR on a case by case basis. Nuisance deer harvest permits will be valid for use by hunters only during the legal deer hunting season. How to apply for a permit: (1) Contact the Town Office to express your interest in obtaining nuisance deer harvest permits. Property Identification Numbers are required to apply; (2) DNR will assess the property for any safety concerns and the number of permits to be issued; (3) Qualified landowners will receive notification from DNR of the number of permits that will be issued for the property and any restrictions that may apply; (4)It will then be the responsibility of the landowner to solicit interest form hunters of their choosing to hunt on their property under a nuisance dee permit. Landowners will provide the hunter’s name and 2014 deer hunting license numbers to the Fish & Wildlife Branch (453-2189) to apply for nuisance deer permits. Once approved, eligible hunters can pick up their permit at the Hampton DNR office (832-6055). For archery hunters who are interested in helping landowners remove deer from their lands, contact the Bow Hunters Association of New Brunswick through shootingfirst@yahoo.ca, or call John Craft at 847-1209. The purpose of this list is to provide the names of bow hunters to landowners, at the landowners request.

Kennebecasis River Bridge #2 (by Kredl's)

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure advises the motoring public that the weight restriction on the Kennebecasis River Bridge #2 on Route 121 (Main St) in Hampton will be reduced from 25 ton to 15 ton effective September 5th. This weight restriction is necessary to carry out repairs on the structure and will remain in place until approximately October 31, 2014. Weight restriction signs will be in place. Traffic delays are expected daily between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. until Sept.19. The delays are due to repair work on the structure. Drivers are reminded to reduce speed while in the construction zone. The Department apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause.

Garbage Collection Changes

Due to the temporary weight restriction on the Green Bridge by Kredls the Town is required to make adjustments to our garbage collection schedule. Your garbage collection day will remain the same but your pick-up time may change. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR GARBAGE IS OUT BY 7 AM ON YOUR COLLECTION DAY.

Main Street (Route 121) Construction (Hall Road to Keirstead Avenue) 

UPDATE - The Town of Hampton was pleased to receive $175,000 from the Province under the 2014 program for improvements to provincially designated highways in municipalities for upgrades including asphalt paving on Route 121 (Main Street) from Hall Road to Keirstead Avenue. The Town is cost sharing with the Province on this project to include such enhancements as new sidewalks and decorative lighting as a continuation of our Main Street Beautification plan that commenced more than a decade ago. All work for this project is being completed within the existing Town-owned right-of-way. The Town notified adjacent property owners prior to beginning construction and appreciate the patience of the business owners and the general public as we continue  towards the completion of this project. These road improvements will better support commercial activities in the downtown core with the addition of a centre left turn lane between the Hall Road and Keirstead Avenue. In order to direct traffic in and out of the three-lane wide portion of Main street, each end has a drop curb island. This is a roll-over curb with stamped asphalt similar to brick style stamped  asphalt that is in the traffic circle, which can easily be driven over without damage so as not to interfere with snow removal operations. The existing holes cut for these island are larger than the finished product. If you have any questions please contact Darcy Harris, P.Eng, at Dillon Consulting Limited: 506-633-5000 or by email at dharris@dillon.ca.
