A SENIOR COUNCIL OFFICER has moved to reassure businesses and residents that vital infrastructure will keep pace with development as Basingstoke grows.
It comes after major plans were submitted to redevelop the shopping precinct at Chineham District Centre.
Tellon Capital want to demolish the current Chineham Shopping Centre and build a hotel, shops, restaurants, a boutique cinema, a gym and 955 parking spaces.
The plans are part of a raft of other development proposals that are set to significantly change the face of the town in the coming years.
These include the £300m overhaul of Basingstoke Leisure Park, which is expected to start in 2023, and potentially hundreds of new homes at Upper Cufaude Farm. Festival Place Shopping Centre has already undergone major refurbishment work with the carpark also being upgraded.
