Policy & Representation

The United voice of business

A key focus for Halton Chamber is its influencing role, providing a united voice for its members and the business community as a whole.

As part of a local, regional and national movement, Halton Chamber is able to represent the interests of its members and lobby on behalf of businesses in the borough on issues affecting them.  We regularly research and survey the views of our local businesses, feeding this vital information back to local, regional and national government departments.

In addition, we welcome input and dialogue on an ongoing basis.  If you have an issue which you would like the Chamber to be aware of and to raise with relevant bodies on your behalf, then please e-mail the Chamber Chief Executive at rachael.owen@haltonchamber.co.uk

Policy and Representation

The Chamber of Commerce movement is a strong and powerful tool for lobbying.  It has the abililty to support and the power to influence.

It's no good just having a voice - you must use it...

Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP): Representation on the LEP is achieved with other Liverpool City Region Chambers and representatives from businesses within each  Local Authority area.  The LEP is committed to creating a thriving international city region, based upon global trade, science and innovation, manufacturing and tourism.  The patnership covers the boroughs of Halton, Sefton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St. Helens and Wirral - an economic area that people recognise, with a population of 1.5 million and 49,000 businesses.

The plan includes major opportunities to create economic growth and jobs within the private sector through major projects such as Liverpool SuperPort, Halton's own Mersey Gateway, Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters.  It also emphasises the importance of business start-up, support for small firms and accelerated business development.

Halton Strategic Partnership Board: Halton Chamber is part of the fabric of the Borough and, as such, has representation on the HSPB, to ensure that business views are heard and acted upon.

“We became a member of Halton Chamber because of the range of services on offer to help our business on a day to day basis, but also to develop and grow. One of Halton Chamber’s strengths is the staff. They have developed a one to one relationship with us and we are treated not as a number but as an individual company with specific needs - we have the support we need, when we need it.”
