Basingstoke Transport Strategy

Consultation open until

In a joint project, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council are holding a public consultation to seek the views of residents, commuters, visitors, businesses and other stakeholders on the emerging Basingstoke Transport Strategy.

The consultation is open from midday on 28 November 2018 and will close at 11:59pm on 28 January 2019.

Context for consultation

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hampshire County Council are looking to improve how people travel throughout Basingstoke.

As the town grows and evolves, it is important that the right travel and transport infrastructure is in place so Basingstoke can continue to prosper at the same time as offering an attractive and healthy place for people to live, work and visit.

A draft transport strategy has been developed which looks at a number of measures to improve transport and travel around Basingstoke, 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

This consultation is an opportunity for residents, commuters, businesses and other stakeholders to provide their views on the emerging Transport Strategy, which will provide the framework for more detailed work on specific projects to 2029 and beyond.
