Primary Authority Partnerships are a statutory scheme under the Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008 (as amended) for businesses that trade in more than one local authority (primary) area. A selection of our current Primary Authority Partners is available to download here.
Since October 2013 the Primary Authority Partnership Scheme allows trade associations to form co-ordinated partnerships with local authorites on behalf of their members.

The Primary Authority Partnership Scheme allows a local authority to provide the fullest range of support to businesses. Examples of services which we can provide under the Primary Authority Partnership Scheme are:
