Council launches major public engagement on Aldershot and Farnborough 2030

Residents and businesses are being asked for their views on the Aldershot and Farnborough they would like to see by 2030 in a major public engagement launched by Rushmoor Borough Council on Friday (22 February).

The council wants to find out what really matters to people about the place they live, work and do business and how they would like to see the area in 2030.

Based on earlier public consultation and feedback from businesses and local organisations, the council has identified six themes that it thinks are important to the place and to local people.

But it would like to know what people think of these six themes - if they are the right things to be focusing on, if there is anything missing or if they would like to see something different.

The six themes are:

  • Vibrant and distinctive town centres
  • Housing for every stage of life
  • Connected communities, proud of our area
  • Healthy and active residents
  • A growing local economy - kind to the environment
  • Opportunities for everyone - quality education and a skilled local workforce

Under each theme, the council has identified the things that it thinks are most important to the area.

People can give their views on our Your future, your place - Aldershot and Farnborough 2030 page.

The council has also arranged a number of public drop-in sessions in Aldershot and Farnborough, where visitors can find out more about the consultation and give their feedback.

These sessions will be at:

  • Aldershot Pools, Guildford Road Aldershot on Wednesday 27 February, from 8am to 10am and 4pm to 6pm
  • Morrisons supermarket, Summit Avenue, Southwood on Thursday 7 March, from 11am to 3pm
  • The Wellington shopping centre, Aldershot on Saturday 9 March, from 11am to 3pm
  • Princes Mead shopping centre,  Farnborough on Saturday 16 March, from 11am to 3pm
  • Prospect Community Centre, Mayfield Road, Farnborough on Wednesday 20 March, from 10.30am to 1.30pm
  • North Town Community Base, North Lane, Aldershot on Friday 22 March, from 10am to midday

Councillor Paul Taylor, Rushmoor Borough Council's Cabinet member for Customer Experience and Improvement, said: "This is an important engagement, as listening to, and learning from, what people say will help us shape the future of Aldershot and Farnborough and the work we do over the coming years. I hope that residents, businesses - and anyone with an interest in our towns - will take the time to take part, either through our online survey or by visiting us at one of our drop-events.  We look forward to hearing people's views."
