Borough recognised as workplace winner

Basingstoke and Deane has been recognised as a great place to do business, being named as one of the top office locations outside London, and the fourth best in the South East.

The league table of workplace winners, published in Property Week, puts the borough ahead of locations such as of Guildford, Wokingham and Winchester.

Hundreds of cities, towns and boroughs were ranked based on factors such as the total number of workers, the demographics of those workers, accessibility and transport links, access to retail and food outlets and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Of the 406 locations which were assessed, Basingstoke ranked at 30. In the South East, the borough was named as the fourth best office location, behind only Brighton and Hove, Reading and Milton Keynes.

Basingstoke and Deane offers a wealth of options as a place to do business with a number of industrial estates and business parks, including 65-acre Basing View.

Around half of Basing View is an Enterprise Zone, which gives businesses that expand within or relocate there the opportunity to get business rates relief of up to £275,000.

It also offers unique access to 5G technology through a 5G emulator and potential for research and development collaboration with world-class institutes.

Executive Director of Borough Development at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Neil Taylor said: “This is further confirmation that the borough is an increasingly attractive location for companies, with our great connectivity to the ports and to London putting us at the heart of business.

“It also reflects our work to regenerate Basing View and ensure that it is well placed to meet demand now and in the future.

“Add to this the new development options which are in the pipeline and it is clear that Basingstoke and Deane has a lot to offer in office space, location and amenities.”
