The Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group’s policy department campaigns regionally and nationally on behalf of businesses of all sizes, exerting powerful influence on government with the aim of creating a more favourable business environment. Working with key stakeholders in across the Thames Valley region each of our seven individual Chambers have their own aims and objectives document, which is compiled and updated by an elected Council of business people from each local Chamber. These documents reflect the issues that the businesses in that particular area are facing and the way in which the local Chamber is working to resolve them.
Local Chamber Councils are a group of local businesses representing different sectors that contribute to local and regional representation, reflecting the Chamber’s strategic priorities and lobbying for the right environment that creates prosperity and growth, whether in the Thames Valley, the UK or internationally.
West Berks Chamber of Commerce
West Berkshire is a primarily rural, comparatively prosperous area. Its population currently stands at just under 145,000 and is projected to grow by seven per cent by 2028. This will mean that an additional 10,000 people will live in the district.
West Berkshire is in a good location, with easy access. There has been a shift in emphasis in West Berkshire towards a more knowledge and service based economy, which has significantly contributed to economic prosperity. The district has excellent communication links to London and to the West via trunk roads, the M4 motorway and mainline railways. West Berkshire is home to a number of well-known national and international companies such as Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), Nextra, Quantel and Vodafone. A strong industrial base, characterised by new technology industries with a strong service sector and several manufacturing and distribution firms, combine to give West Berkshire one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
