About the Lymington and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Being a Chamber of Commerce brings its own responsibilities, but also brings the recognition that comes with a tradition going back to the 18th century in the UK. We take our responsibilities very seriously and aspire to earn the respect of the community and other organisations within the community. The Lymington and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry (known as the LDCCI for the sake of sanity), was founded in 1952 to facilitate business in Lymington and the surrounding area and is still going strong. Although the LDCCI is overseen by the Chamber Board, we very much believe in the maxim ‘Your Chamber, Your Choice’. The main purpose of the LDCCI is to help members promote their own businesses and facilitate an environment which is as helpful to that as possible. In order to do that we actively pursue engagement with the local authorities and other organizations in the area. We have good links with the town council, (not just because they are a Chamber member!), and help sponsor various incentives by them throughout the year. Being a Chamber of Commerce there is rightly a high expectation of conduct both by members and of the LDCCI as a whole. We do not owe any particular political affiliation, our job is to work with whatever political hue is in charge at the time and represent our members’ interests at all times. So if you have a business or organisation in Lymington and the surrounding area, there is space for you in the LDCCI. If you haven’t already, join today.

About the Area

Lymington is well known for its retail community which is well represented in our membership, but we also have a thriving marine industry with two large marinas in addition to the famous Quay. There are a large number of small service businesses in the area who find the LDCCI a place to find new business and maintain business relationships. In the relatively new Ampress Park business park, Lymington has become home to an increasing number of manufacturing, retail and other businesses. Milford on Sea is rightly renowned for it’s annual food festival and the number of restaurants situated within easy walking distance and the views across the Solent to the Needles on the Isle of Wight from the beach front. Brockenhurst has become one of the main staging posts for holidays in the New Forest National Park with it’s wide range of hotels and good transport links.
