Welcome to St Albans BID, a Business Improvement District which is business led and business funded and formed to improve a defined area  (see our map here). We work with local businesses and sometimes residents also located within the area to create a vibrant, thriving, sustainable and resilient St Albans city centre by creating and investing in projects and initiatives that really deliver value back to the BID area, benefiting those who live, work and play here whilst promoting St Albans as a premier destination and in doing so driving a prosperous local economy.

We collaborate with statutory and non-statutory partners on issues that impact or enhance the BID area however BID does not replace any work responsibility of those partners. The role of BIDs is to provide additionality to St Albans.

St Albans BID is now in it’s second elected term between 2022-2027. You can find out more about the second term and our business plan here.

“I am very grateful for all that the BID has done. I will continue to be an advocate for the work of the BID, never more needed than now. The Cathedral will continue to partner with the BID to make St Albans a better place in which to live and work, and for people to come and visit.”

Kevin Walton, Canon Chancellor of St Albans Cathedral
