At a specially convened conference focussing on the challenges and opportunities in the amenity sector, held in Edinburgh, the new Amenity Standard was formally launched in Scotland by Mairi Gougeon, MSP, Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment. This Standard is akin to the Red Tractor in food and agriculture. Those operating to the Standard and displaying its logo will demonstrate their adherence to recognised assured standards in all tasks undertaken.

The introduction of the Standard has already generated widespread support. Speaking about the Standard, the Rural Affairs Minister said ‘’what happens in the management of our amenity spaces affects us all – the Amenity Standard will help land managers demonstrate that all tasks undertaken are safe, sustainable, legal and at very best practice.  The Scottish Government fully supports the Amenity Standard and the wider work of the Amenity Forum and we will continue to work together to encourage a fully integrated approach to weed, pest and disease management in amenity spaces.”.
