The economic master plan for Basingstoke 2033 sets out an ambitious vision for the next 20 years to ensure a thriving future for all those who live and work in the borough.
The master plan lays out all the major proposals for the future, acting a ‘shopping list’ of the key improvements that are needed to attract external investment, such as transport improvements and new business developments.
It will be used by the council to attract funding to the area from the government and the local enterprise partnership Enterprise M3, and to encourage companies to bring new jobs to the borough. At a more local level it will be used for joint planning of investment needs with Hampshire County Council and other partners, such as housing associations.
Developed in collaboration with other public service bodies, such as the county council, colleges, the hospital and the police and other organisations and businesses, the master plan aims to be a plan for ‘Basingstoke’ rather than for the council.
