Our Policy

As the independent "Voice of Local Business", the Chamber represents the views of the private sector to policy makers at local, regional, national and European levels.

The Chamber’s surveys, reports and consultations provide grassroots business opinion on issues such as Tax, Regulation, Skills and Transport. The Chamber is represented on many organisations and meets regularly with key opinion formers to represent our members’ interests, and we respond to all major government consultations affecting the business community.

The Chamber has an established Bank of England panel that meets on a regular basis and with the North West Agent of the Bank of England Monetary Committee regarding interest rates.
