Shaping the future through Horizon 2050

Horizon 2050 - logo

Basingstoke and Deane is a great place to live today thanks to the well-thought-out and bold long-term decisions taken in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, which planned our current infrastructure.

Through the Horizon 2050 initiative, the aim is to set an ambitious and aspirational shared vision to ensure that residents have high quality homes, jobs and leisure and community facilities for decades to come. This will drive and provide the foundations for far-reaching decisions about the future, setting the direction for the council and other partners’ work.

How is Horizon 2050 being developed?

The draft vision has been created through the Horizon 2050 project. This has seen lots of different organisations and residents contributing their ideas through workshops and events to help determine what is important and right for the future of the borough. A public consultation was held during the summer of 2018 and we are currently collating your comments. A telephone sample survey is currently underway, where Ipsos MORI is calling households to find out their opinions. All views provided will inform the development of the final vision, which is due to be adopted by the borough council and its partners in December 2018.

The draft vision has been broken down into key themes: economy and entrepreneurship transport, the homes we’ll live in, education, sustainability, environment and healthy and resilient communities with influence.
