One of the main remits of Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce is to be the voice for its members. We represent the views of our members and help support them with real issues affecting their business.

Rather than being one voice on your own you are part of a proactive group of over 500 business voices, giving you greater support and representation with the ability to champion and the power to influence, to promote economic growth in our city.

Providing focused advocacy to expand influence and strengthening networks to increase opportunities and leading collaborative campaigns to champion business priorities.

Representation & Lobbying is carried out both at local and national level. Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce is represented on the following local groups:

  • Chamber/City Council Cabinet /Business Liaison Group
  • City Council Planning Policy Liaison Group
  • Lancaster District Vision Board
  • Lancaster District Local Strategic Partnership and Economic Group
  • North Lancashire LAG Lancashire Rural Development Fund
  • Heysham Power Station Local Community Liaison Council
  • Lancaster University Court

Regional and national representation and lobbying activity is carried out through our membership and affiliation with North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

This is an opportunity to voice your opinion on issues that affect your business.

Our quarterly economic survey gives valuable information on trends within the local economy and contributes to the regional and national surveys undertaken by the British Chambers of Commerce. Facilitating you to get your views across and heard by key decision makers.

Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce is run by the members and for the members so we want to hear from you.

If you have any issues affecting your businesses, that you want raising then get in touch with us as we would like to hear from you.

We work to a clear set of priorities driven and determined by you.
