Chief Executive and Policy

This area covers a range of work including policy, strategy, communications, partnerships, health, community safety and protection, economic development and emergency planning.

Our key priority projects include:

  • Strengthening the retail in the District by working with retailers and local property owners to support the City Centre Partnership.
  • Continuing development of the District’s strengths as a centre for specialist green business (the ‘Green Triangle’) and professional services (the ‘City of Expertise’).
  • Supporting the Visitor Partnership’s work to implement the visitor strategy.
  • Engaging with local health partners, through the Health and Wellbeing Partnership, to input into future decisions on hospital provision in St Albans.

Other work within this department includes developing the use of social media, delivery of the St Albans District Health and Wellbeing fund and direct engagement with the local business community.
