After a yes vote on the BID ballot for St Albans in 2016, the BID Company was given the green light to invest £2.5m in the City Centre over 5 years.

St Albans BID is delivered by businesses for businesses, with a BID office directed by a Board of representatives of the BID area. Effective governance of the BID is essential for clear decision-making and the ability for businesses to have their ideas become reality. St Albans BID Board meets regularly to ensure best practices and best value in all that we do. Levy payers are welcome to request information on Board decisions and relevant Board meeting minutes upon request.

Get involved

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 and 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.
