Who We Are

BID St Andrews is your Business Improvement District – an independent, not-for-profit company set up with the aim of improving St Andrews town centre as a place to work, live and visit.

First established in 2016, BID St Andrews is one of 37 Business Improvement Districts in Scotland. Led by member businesses, the BID represents over 280 organisations.

BID St Andrews is democratically elected by its member businesses. A BID term lasts for a maximum of five years, after which a renewal ballot is required to approve the next five-year term.


The BID is managed by a core team, which manages the day-to-day operations, and ensures that the projects and operations in the Business Plan are driven forward, monitored and measured.



BID St Andrews is led by a Board of Management and 2 local representatives from the Council and the business community. The Board includes large and small levy-paying businesses in the area – reflecting the business mix in St Andrews. If you would like to become a board member, please contact us on
