Grassland Management - Improved grassland management for biodiversity and greenspace enhancement report

Published on 27 February 2024

From: NHSScotland Assure

The report supports NHS boards to change grassland management from low biodiversity value to species-rich and enhance greenspace.



The report supports the strategic ambitions of NHSScotland and seeks to assist NHS boards with the development and implementation of more sustainable grassland management practice, to establish species-rich, tall grassland where appropriate. The report includes examples of NHS sites where this approach has already been applied and signposts to a wide range of resources to deliver the change required, as well as technical advice available from external organisations.

The information included can help NHS boards tailor and implement a local and site-specific approach to changing grassland management practices, reflecting resources available.
