What We're Doing in Rochdale

Lead by our Local Chamber Council and member feedback from our Action for Business events, the Chamber's activity in Rochdale is focused on:

Raising the profile of Rochdale as a place to do business.

Business Rates reform

  • Business rates are a complicated and poorly targeted tax and the Chamber is campaigning for national reform on this issue. Chris Stern offers Chamber members advice and guidance on business rates. You can contact him directly via

Construction Events

  • As part of our ongoing work to ensure that our Property and Construction sector members are aware of the pipeline of work in the region, the Chamber organises events for businesses in Oldham and Rochdale. Guided by a steering group of local businesses from the sector, this event is an excellent opportunity to find out what is going on in the local area, get help in competing for this work and to network with other businesses.
