Welcome to St Albans BID, a Business Improvement District which is business led and business funded and formed to improve a defined commercial area. We work with local businesses and residents 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.

Our mission is to invest in projects and initiatives that deliver value to the BID area which will nurture an inclusive, vibrant city neighbourhood, support businesses and promote St Albans City and businesses as a premier, heritage destination, driving a prosperous local economy.

Today there are over 330 Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) across UK towns and cities with 30 in London alone.

In November 2016, the businesses of St Albans voted in favour of a BID. It launched in spring 2017, running for a 5-year term, until March 2022. See why it’s so important for the businesses of St Albans to vote ‘YES’ in our January ballot to ensure the BID continues, click 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, Dean of St Albans Cathedral
