Today there are over 330 Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) across UK towns and cities with 30 in London alone. Many historical tourist cities such as Bath, York and Cambridge have a BID.

In November 2016 the businesses of St Albans voted in favour of a BID, built by local businesses for local businesses and managed by local businesses.

It launched in spring 2017 and runs for a 5-year term, until March 2022. See why it’s so important for the businesses of St Albans to vote ‘YES’ in the next ballot to ensure the BID continues, here.
