City Forums & Lobbying

As constant corporate champions, CityCo and Manchester City Centre BID have an influential role in lobbying on behalf of members with the city’s public agencies, helping to keep business interests at the forefront of tactical and operational planning. We attend various meetings on behalf of businesses and run numerous working groups.

Businesses benefit from:

  • Representation at local authority-led committees including the Manchester City Council Integrated Neighbourhood Meeting, City Centre Ward Coordination Meeting, Transport for Greater Manchester briefings and Greater Manchester Police forums.
  • Representation at action groups including the Manchester Homelessness Partnership, Manchester Water Safety Partnership, Manchester Food Board, Manchester Hotelier’s Association.
  • Representation at CityCo-led senior meetings including the CityCo Board, Manchester BID Board and ABID Board.
  • Invitations to CityCo-led ‘Local Area’ network meetings.
  • Invitations to CityCo-administrated Manchester Pub & Club Network events (500+ day and night-time economy venues).
