St Albans is a unique English Cathedral City with a colourful history which can be seen in the Roman remains and variety of beautiful architecture, heritage sites and conservation areas. Set within green belt, off the M25, A1M and M1 the District includes a cathedral, vibrant city centre and thriving villages. Our centrally located offices in the city are near to the station (London St Pancras 20 minutes), shops and restaurants. In short it is a great place to live and work.
We have put the foundations in place over the last two years to change the way we do business. Our three Strategic Directors are driving our ambitious change plans. We have created a new single delivery team to manage our customer engagement, underpinned by new technology.
