The Amenity Forum says it is seeking to lead a campaign over the coming months to fully communicate the importance of amenity and its management.
They say it will build upon the previous successful launch of Get Moving and use a range of channels to emphasise the need for amenity management to create safe, healthy public spaces fit for purpose. Development work is on-going and more information will be available soon.
The Forum is also set to launch the new Amenity Standard in October at its conference. This standard, akin to the Red Tractor in the food sector, will provide assurance to all that operations are being undertaken to recognised assurance scheme levels. Also very soon, the Forum will be publishing a document and template to help operators and others in producing integrated management plans.
Professor John Moverley, the independent chairman of the Forum, said ‘’Over the last 10 years the Forum has developed strong recognition for the work of those in the amenity sector. We embrace all sectors of our diverse and essential sector and have pushed forward standards and engagement and commitment to best practice. We now seek to fully drive this forward and a key objective is to increase public awareness of the professionalism of our sector and provide the facts about what is undertaken – exciting times.’’
On October 10th, the Amenity Forum is holding its annual conference and exhibition. This year the theme is ‘21st Century Amenity Management’. It will be held at the Pirelli Stadium at Burton on Trent. Tickets are £85 + VAT for early birds booking before 1st September 2019.
