St Albans Business Improvement District (BID) is a private sector led, not for profit company operating within a defined geographical area in St Albans city centre.   Following a majority vote by levy payers, the BID, which is funded by a compulsory levy payment, was created in April 2017 for a 5-year term, in accordance with legislation.

The BID works in partnership with the local authority, St Albans District Council, to provide the BID projects and deliver enhanced city centre services for the benefit of the business improvement district or those who live, work or carry out any activity in the BID district.
