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 vision for the next three decades to ensure that residents have high-quality homes, jobs and leisure and community facilities and businesses benefit from a thriving economy.
Consultation on the draft vision runs until Sunday 19th August and you can have your say, and find out more information, via the website at basingstoke.gov.uk/horizon2050.
If you have any questions about the Horizon 2050, please contact the borough council’s Policy Team Manager Simon Christian on 01256 845183 or by emailing Simon.Christian@basingstoke.gov.uk
