Shaping the future through Horizon 2050

Have your say on the borough's vision for 2050

Horizon 2050 - logo

People in Basingstoke and Deane are being asked to help shape what the borough will look like in the future as part of the Horizon 2050 project.

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 vison 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.

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.

The 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. And residents are being asked to give their views on these to inform the development of the final vision, which is due to be adopted by the borough council and its partners in December.
