City Forums & Lobbying

CityCo supports the vibrancy and resilience of Manchester city centre by bringing business members together with the city’s public agencies. We work with Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester Police, Marketing Manchester, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Manchester’s homelessness networks and other statutory bodies.

As constant corporate champions, we have an influential role in lobbying local authorities and represent our networks at a whole range of city-focused meetings and forums.
