Shailesh Vara MP officially opened Allison Homes' new headquarters at Fleet House, Hampton in Peterborough. He was joined by John Anderson, the company’s CEO as well as a number of distinguished guests from the local community and staff from the company.

Mr Vara cut the ribbon at the entrance to the building and also joined in presenting the prestigious Bricks Certificate of Recognition to employee Paul Vasey, for his impeccable workmanship showcased on site.

In his speech following the opening, Mr Vara commended the company for their outstanding community initiatives, emphasising the importance of collaboration between developers and local communities to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.

The company’s relocation to Fleet House not only underscores their strategic vision but also reaffirms their dedication to creating more local employment opportunities. By selecting Peterborough as its new home, Allison Group joins a growing number of thriving enterprises, highlighting the city's innovation and growth.

Following the event Mr Vara said:

“It is always a pleasure to welcome new businesses to my constituency. Allison Homes have a track record of over 30 years and with their 200 or so employees in the region, I am sure the number will continue to increase.

“I am particularly pleased that the company encourages new talent into the industry, especially with their 18 new apprentices last year alone. I wish the company well in its new headquarters, and I hope that they will continue to support the local community, including with their generous charitable donations.”
