Have Your Say
It can be difficult for an individual business to influence policy alone. However as part of a group of businesses led by the Chamber you can have a much stronger voice exerting greater influence on policies affecting business. In addition, the Chamber is a member of the British Chambers of Commerce joining with businesses across the whole of the UK in calling for policy decisions that are good for business. Cornwall Chamber of Commerce aims to be a voice for business in the Duchy using its influence, experience and contacts to represent you and lobby on behalf of the business community at all levels – from local government to ministerial level.
The Chamber has a presence on a range of committees and groups that influence policy making decisions in Cornwall on issues such as dualling the A30, the growth strategy and local infrastructure. We are also represented on a number of panels and committees across the South Western Region enabling us to represent you regionally as well as locally.
Our local and national lobbying efforts and the campaigns we are involved in include:
Business Rates: Cornwall Chamber of Commerce represents the business community's views on affordable business rates
The Stadium for Cornwall: Cornwall Chamber of Commerce lobbied on behalf of the business community for this
Cornwall Lenders Forum: Cornwall Chamber of Commerce organise regular meetings from the key financial groups operating within the Duchy
