WHO WE ARE
The Whitley Bay Chamber of Trade inspires, connects and supports businesses, services, organisations and charities within Whitley Bay, Monkseaton, and Cullercoats. We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation which works hard to improve our towns economic prosperity and represents Whitley Bay business interests on both a local and regional level. The support we offer extends to both established and start-up businesses alike.
We strive to encourage the development of trade and commercial activity in the town, the overall promotion of Whitley Bay and its immediate trading areas.
The Chamber is a dynamic organisation in Whitley Bay which makes a real difference to businesses based within the town.
We work with many strategic partners including North Tyneside Council, North Tyneside Business Forum, the local Police Force, the Elected Mayor, the local press and Nexus to ensure that Whitley Bay is an attractive place to conduct your business. As a result, we are able to give you early notice of matters that may affect you; and raise with these bodies, matters of concern. Our communal voice carries more weight than a single voice.
We host bi-monthly meetings and often invite a representative of relevant local bodies to our meetings to give a short talk and to discuss matters of interest to members.
We are a partner in the North Tyneside Business Forum, which supports businesses across North Tyneside, and we are also members of the North Tyneside Town Centre Task Group, which helps to determine retail plans for our towns in North Tyneside.
Through our affiliation with the North East Chamber of Commerce, we have access to information and resources of the NECC.
Membership costs less than £1.00 a week (which is tax deductible). The fee is £48.00 per annum.
