Basing View opportunity
Basing View is one of the best connected and affordable business destinations within the South East. Basingstoke’s central business district is located less than five minutes’ walk from Basingstoke train station with direct links to London in 45 minutes, Reading in 15 minutes and London Heathrow in under an hour.
Basingstoke Town Centre opportunity
Located on the doorstep of Basingstoke train station, the town centre attracts local and regional shoppers. The area includes The Malls Shopping Centre, which is owned by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, the historic Top of the Town and Festival Place which is home to over 140 big brands and 20 eateries.
The transformation of Basingstoke town centre will be fulfilled through a partnership approach between the public and private sectors. The council is looking for partners who are interested in bringing the vision and master plan to life through a series of development site opportunities.
Basingstoke Leisure Park opportunity
Basingstoke Leisure Park is a well-loved facility enjoyed by many residents and their families including visitors from a wider area. But it needs to be updated and improved.
As owner of the leisure park, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is developing long-term plans to give it a more sustainable future and looking at what facilities a modernised Aquadrome, as the council-owned facility on the park, could provide. The council is considering the most appropriate and viable options to provide facilities for residents and visitors and improve the environment and accessibility of the leisure park.
