Delivering homes, jobs and community facilities

Hawksmead is part of The Larkfleet Group of Companies. It was set up specifically to manage the early stages of development of Oakham Heights - a major urban expansion of Oakham being built on land between the Oakham bypass and Barleythorpe Road.

In total, more than 800 high quality homes – including 'affordable' homes for local people – will eventually be constructed in a number of phases as part of a development programme running until around 2027.

In addition to new housing, the plans for Oakham Heights include offices, parks and open spaces, children's play areas, allotments and a new local centre. The plans also include a new hotel with an adjoining pub/restaurant, enhancements to the ecology of Barleythorpe Brook which runs through the site and improved transport links with new cycle, footpath and bus routes.

Integral parts of the development will be a new permanent enhanced and enlarged home for the Rutland County Show and new improved facilities for the town's football, rugby and other clubs.

The plans for Oakham Heights also include a 100 unit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) and 60 bed care home. Together they will offer a range of 'living options' – from independent and assisted living to nursing and dementia care for people with greater needs.

Although Hawksmead continues to exist as a legal entity, operational responsibility for the continuing development of Oakham Heights has now been returned to The Larkfleet Group of Companies.
