Funding for your project

If you have an idea for a project or event that you would like the BID to support with funding, you will need to complete the Business Case Template and return it to the office. If you have any queries or would like to discuss your idea in advance, please get in touch to arrange a meeting.

Contracts and opportunities

St Albans BID is determined to ensure that all partners, contractors and projects are selected in a wholly transparent and linear process, with high quality and value for money at the centre of that process.

Contracts with a value over £5,000 will be subject to a competitive tendering process. There are currently no tenders open with St Albans BID.

Become a BID board member

We are always looking for new dynamic board members to shape our story. Join our current board members and make a difference to your city. Our main aim is to strengthen the Board with senior levy payers from a broad background to represent a wide range of sectors such as digital, marketing, leisure, hospitality or finance, keeping a balance on age, gender and the different areas within the district. During the BID’s term, £2.5 million will be invested into the BID’s priorities: making St Albans a cleaner and safer City, driving business support, networking, and promoting an active and attractive district where businesses can start-up, stay-up and thrive.

We want to hear from senior decision makers from large organisations or SMEs that are currently BID levy payers who want to give back to the community and help improve the city by delivering the core areas within the BID business plan. Board members are expected to take a leading role alongside the BID team to help develop initiatives within the main priorities for the city.
