Chair of Broadland District Council celebrates second anniversary of Allison Homes East’s Norwich development

The Chair of Broadland District Council has visited our East region’s 520-home development in Norwich two years after construction work began, to see how the site is progressing and the plans for its future.


The development, called The Oaks, is located off Tillett Way and consists of a stunning collection of three, four and five bedroom homes.


The Oaks is our first development in Norfolk, and construction work began in February 2022. In December 2022, The Oaks was officially opened for interested property seekers to visit.


Chair Councillor Caroline Karimi-Ghovanlou recently received a tour of The Oaks and met with our East team, including Construction Director Andy Richards, Senior Site Manager Andrew Burke, Construction Manager Sam Tordoff and Sales Manager William Wallace.


During the visit, the Chair viewed the available homes and show homes, toured both the completed and upcoming areas of the site, and learnt more about The Oaks’ progress and future.


Councillor Karimi-Ghovanlou said: “It’s been fantastic to visit The Oaks and see what brilliant progress has been made over the last two years. We welcome the arrival of new housing that not only addresses the pressing need for affordable housing in our district but also provides quality homes for many. These homes not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of our area but also embody the promise of a thriving neighbourhood, offering affordable housing options to local people in need of homes.”   


Andy Richards said: “It was a pleasure to host Councillor Karimi-Ghovanlou at The Oaks and show her all the fantastic work our team has carried out over the past two years.


“As our first Norfolk development, all of us at Allison Homes are exceptionally proud of The Oaks and to be creating a vibrant new community for Norwich people to call their own. We are looking forward to continuing work on the site, providing the area with high quality homes of all types and tenure.”


The Oaks is open Thursday to Monday, from 10am to 5pm. To find out more about the available homes, visit The Oaks or contact the sales team on or 07483 073632.
