Head of Property Andy Wells talks to tenant farmer

Crown Estate Scotland launches tenant consultation

Crown Estate Scotland is seeking input from its tenants on its future shape and development.

A survey is to be issued to coastal, agricultural, residential and aquaculture 1,670 tenants to seek their views on the current and future working arrangements of the organisation.

It will ask tenants about communications, levels of service, what challenges their business face more generally and where there may be room for improvement.

The survey, which can be completed anonymously by Crown Estate Scotland’ tenants, follows the creation of the new body on 1 April to manage assets that were previously managed by UK-wide business The Crown Estate.

Crown Estate Scotland has tenants the length and breadth of Scotland, including farmers, mooring association and fish farmers.

Andy Wells, head of property at Crown Estate Scotland, said: “Feedback from our tenants is vital in ensuring that the Crown Estate Scotland team is aware of the concerns of our tenants, enabling us to offer the best possible support.

“Our tenants are at the heart of what we do and this survey is a way of gathering opinion and feedback, so that we know what tenants like about our service and what we may try to change. It’s a great opportunity for them to have their say.”

The study is being conducted by Research Resource, an independent research organisation, and a summary of key results will be made available following completion.
