Basingstoke and Deane is one of the most successful areas in the south east. With a 95% resident satisfaction rate, fourth highest rate of economic activity in the south east and a local economy worth £7.4 billion, it’s an amazing place to live, work and start a business.
Boasting direct links to London in 45 minutes and home to global brands like Sony, Eli Lilly and Company, Fujitsu, Lenovo and Bombay Sapphire alongside more than 7,900 other businesses, the borough has all the ingredients for both start-ups and established businesses to succeed: a supportive environment, plenty of networking opportunities, affordable and flexible space and excellent road, rail, sea and air connections within the UK and internationally.
Surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside Basingstoke also has an outstanding quality of life with a vibrant cultural offer and great places to socialise and shop.
The town continues to capitalise on major multi-million-pound investments already made including Basing View, a designated Enterprise Zone, which offers sustainable Grade A office space just minutes from the rail station, town centre and the M3.
Aiming to become a carbon neutral borough by 2030 and with an ambitious vision for growth Basingstoke continues to be dynamic as it meets the demands of a new future.
