Welcome to the Website of Yeovil Chamber of Trade & Commerce
Yeovil Chamber is the BIG voice for business and commerce for local, regional, and national issues; actively promoting new opportunities for our members, and the wider business community.
To keep members informed and empowered, our Executive Committee regularly engage with other stakeholders such as Yeovil Town Council, South Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council, Avon & Somerset Police, the Western Gazette, and our Member of Parliament. Yeovil Chamber is also a board member of Yeovil Town Team.
We will continue to lobby all the way up to central Government to bring about much-needed change to the unfair and distorted delivery of business rates. High business rates continue to be a major cause of empty shops in Yeovil town centre.
Despite Government commitment, provision for superfast broadband remains patchy in and around the Yeovil area, and we will continue to fight for full rural and urban coverage in the Yeovil area. Broadband is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity.
We continue to work with South Somerset District Council, to encourage delivery of a flexible and commercial approach to town centre car parking facilities and rates.
Our ongoing work with Avon & Somerset Police has put more officers on the beat, to reduce crime in Yeovil town centre.
We also offer a variety of regular events to entertain, inform, and promote high-quality, informal networking opportunities, and a variety of discounted rates when engaging the services of other member businesses.
Whether you are a one-person enterprise or a large employer, membership of Yeovil Chamber can make a difference!
