Strategies, plans and policies
Council Plan 2020 to 2024
The Council Plan 2020 to 2024 was agreed at council on 27 February 2020 and is effective from 1 April 2020.
The Council Plan is a high level document that sits alongside the Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS). These two documents set out the council’s vision for future years, including how it will deliver key priorities. It links with other key strategies and plans, by identifying the priorities that will guide service planning and contribute to the delivery of the Horizon 2050 shared vision for the borough.
It is great to hear that the majority of people who live in Basingstoke and Deane love it here, in figures from the latest residents’ survey. But we are determined to do everything we can to make it an even better place to live, work and visit.
Therefore, the council’s focus over the next four years is putting residents at the heart of everything we do by focusing on these priorities:
- Strengthening communities.
- Protecting and enhancing our environment.
- Improving safety.
- Planning for the future.
It is important that we are all working together as a team - everyone can do their bit to make this an even better place. Residents, businesses and partners are key to making our plans to improve the borough a success.
In addition to the Council Plan, there is a range of published strategies and policies that guide the council’s work, these include the Local Plan and Housing and Homelessness Strategy.

Local Strategic Partnership
The Basingstoke Area Strategic Partnership (BASP) is a voluntary partnership. It brings together different sectors to focus on local issues in a strategic and co-ordinated way.
BASP is a joint venture with all partners working to the same overall aim of improving the quality of life to the benefit of everyone living and working in the borough of Basingstoke and Deane. It acts as a strategic body that focuses on current strategic issues and on future challenges; the individual partners carry out the work of delivering the agreed key priorities.
Working in partnership provides an opportunity for networking and helps organisations to come up with joint solutions. Working together gives us a chance to share information and resources and achieve more than we could do on our own.
BASP operates with a flexible structure made up of elected representatives from the district, parish and county councils, and representatives of the public, private, voluntary and community sectors
