Advocacy and your business

Local leadership and effective national influence on issues that matter to business

Working together with the local community, authorities and key stakeholders to champion and effect change for our businesses.

We are dedicated to representing the key interests of our businesses.

As part of our advocacy programme, we regularly file policy papers and consultation responses to government and local authority partners across a range of key issues facing our businesses.

We want to provide members with every opportunity to have your voice heard on the key issues that matter to your business. As such, see relevant consultations open for response and comment.

We are pleased to introduce all members our weekly monitoring report, providing real insight into key political developments of the week.
