Key facts

  • The Sprowston neighbourhood is located in Broadland district, to the east of Norwich. It encompasses the areas of Sprowston, Old Catton and Beeston St Andrew.
  • There are approximately 18,000 residents. Development proposals to provide many more homes are likely to ensure that the neighbourhood and its facilities will continue to develop.
  • While crime levels are low, youth anti-social behaviour can be a problem, especially at weekends when groups of youths congregate. The areas of Sprowston and Old Catton are striving to improve leisure activities for young people.
