New development can bring a number of key benefits to the local area both during construction and when operational. Basingstoke Gateway is set to provide an estimated 1,091new and varied jobs plus jobs during the construction stage, as well as new infrastructure, funding and inward investment.

The job roles available will be diverse including professional jobs, plant operations, managerial positions, and highly-skilled occupations. Our site, therefore, can be a catalyst for economic growth and investment. For every 10 jobs created in warehousing, another 7 are created across the wider supply chain.

In the South East, jobs in infrastructure and logistics pay on average £4.8k more than the average for all other sectors.

Here are some of the things we are doing to operate as sustainably as possible:

  • Estimated 1,091 new operational jobs for local people
  • Estimated 600 professional or highly skilled jobs
  • Approximately 590 construction jobs
  • £39 million cumulative business rate income to 2042
  • Construction & End User Employment, Training & Skills Plans
  • Over 10% Biodiversity Net Gain
  • 50% of the site is green and blue infrastructure
  • New roundabout and improvements to roads designed for accessing the proposed Southern Manydown allocation

Our proposals prioritise sustainable travel as much as possible, with attractive cycleways that connect to the town centre and electric vehicle car charging.

  • Traffic reduced by 18-20%, creating less traffic than previous applications at the site
  • £1.5million invested in a new limited stop bus service between Oakdown Farm, Hounsome Fields and Basingstoke town centre
  • Onsite parking and driver facilities, with ample parking for HGVs and facilities for drivers
  • Incentivised bus and bike travel for staff, with safe cycle storage, showers, changing rooms and lockers
