Hampshire County Council and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are seeking residents’ and stakeholders’ views on travel and transport within Basingstoke, including which types of measures should be prioritised to improve movement throughout the town. 

Deadline for comments is 28th January 2019

Over the past decade the two councils, working with key partners, have introduced changes to transport, including significant improvements at key junctions. However, as Basingstoke continues to grow and evolve, further improvements are needed to ensure that the right travel and transport infrastructure is in place. This is vital to securing Basingstoke’s future economic growth and prosperity – and making the town a more attractive and healthier place to live, work and visit. 

The two councils, with support of the EM3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)  are seeking views to inform a new shared vision, and to set the priorities for further investment in Basingstoke’s transport infrastructure over the coming years. Your feedback will help to inform a new Transport Strategy for Basingstoke. 

The draft transport strategy: emerging strategy framework, proposes a range of measures for improving transport including: 

  • improving access to and within the town centre;
  • creating new developments which are well-planned and integrated with the existing transport network;
  • providing a step change in the quality of local public transport;
  • developing high quality priority strategic walking and cycling corridors;
  • managing journey times and reliability;
  • maintaining strong strategic transport connections;
  • forward planning of the transport network to meet future needs.

A consultation on the draft Transport Strategy commenced on Wednesday 28th November and runs until 28 January 2019 with a copy of the documents and questionnaire available to view on-line at www.hants.gov.uk/basingstoketransportstrategy
We look forward to hearing from you.
