Ahead of the formation of Basingstoke Together, more than 100 businesses across Basingstoke were consulted about a BID and their responses shaped the four main priority areas:
1. Promoting Our Town Together – Basingstoke has a lot to offer but by coordinating that offer across the town, whether that be joining up the day-time and evening economies or helping people see its variety we can attract more people to Basingstoke as a whole.
2. A Place for People – The BID will work hard to make Basingstoke a place that works to meet the needs of the people that work, live and visit here.
3. A Place for Business – The BID will work hard to make Basingstoke a more successful and more convenient place to do business.
4. A Voice for Business – There are many issues, such as transport and the quality of public spaces, that we would struggle to influence as individual businesses. The BID will be a strong business voice in discussions with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, Stage Coach, Southwest Trains, Hampshire County Council and other bodies to make sure that the best interests of our community are always on the table.
Since its formation in 2016, the BID has delivered on all those pledges and more. Now Basingstoke Together is asking the businesses in Basingstoke to vote for another five-year term for the BID. You have told us your top three priorities are;
Car parking accessibility
Vibrancy and empty units.
Following the COVID pandemic, the BID is pledging to support the businesses in the town centre and support a full economic recovery so we can all build a brighter future – together.
We believe our town centre businesses will thrive because everyone can enjoy being here
We believe our town centre will be a place of innovation and collaboration that will benefit us all
We believe our town centre will be connected and grow, providing a clean, green, safe and attractive place for all visitors
And we believe this can be achieved if we all work together to build a brighter future for Basingstoke.
