Proactive, progressive, pro-business council partner

Now more than ever, investors are looking for a trusted, long-term partner. Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council can offer that.

Focused on building a robust economy, the council has already delivered £13 million of investment to kickstart the business district regeneration. More importantly, the council is the major commercial landowner in town and can offer competitive deals.

The council’s progressive outlook is fuelling change as it continues to invest in mixed-use town centre regeneration, new sustainable homes, innovative business parks and leisure facilities.

The most recent example is the £30 million investment by new owners Longstock Capital in refurbishing Mountbatten House on the council owned business park, Basing View. In addition to that, LevertonHELM has also signed a lease on a council owned site at Viables Business Park. One of the largest global manufacturers of lithium carbonate, which is used in car batteries, the company has signed a 20-year lease — demonstrating their commitment to Basingstoke.

"I find the Council to be proactive in communicating with businesses in the borough, whether it's to share future visions and plans, to get feedback from businesses or simply create networking events for people to get to know each other."
