Business & Commerce - Chamber of Commerce
The Leatherhead and District Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of well over 100 businesses in the Leatherhead area. Its offices are based in the beautiful Fetcham Park House from where it provides a service to its members large and small.
In its own web site, the Chamber puts the undoubted success of Leatherhead as a business centre down to three factors:
- The quality of the local environment, both the town and its surrounding countryside;
- The excellent communications: ready access to two international airports at Heathrow and Gatwick; rail links direct to London and the south coast; junction 9 of M25 motorway within a few minutes drive of the town centre; the close proximity of the primary road network giving access north, south, east and west.
- The competitive cost of modern office accommodation.
The Chamber's web site provides a directory of members and of hotel accommodation for business purposes. There is access also to the newsletters and to a busy schedule of events and initiatives throughout the year. The Chamber is also responsible for the twice weekly markets held in the town centre and board members represent the business community on various other town committees.
