Is your local authority interested in becoming a member of the Industrial Communities Alliance?    

We're always glad to accept new members, and can come and speak with you about the benefits of membership for your authority.   

Our membership is open to all local authorities in the UK in traditional industrial areas. However, this does not include Town, Parish and Community Councils.   

We operate on a subscriptions basis, depending upon council type and population coverage.  

If you might be interested in joining us, in the first instance, contact:    

Dr Joan Dixon at or on 01226 200768
