Conservation Department

Welcome to the Hampton Conservation Commission’s Website!

The Hampton Conservation Commission was formed to protect and preserve the existing freshwater and saltwater wetlands, and wetland buffers in Hampton.  It is in the public interest to protect the valuable functions these areas serve, such as providing habitats for fish, wildlife and flora; groundwater protections; stormwater control; nutrient and pollution filtering; and recreation and aesthetic enjoyment.  

One of the ways in which the Commission does this is through protecting the Wetland Conservation District which is defined and outlined within the Town Zoning Ordinances.  Those can be found here.
