Invasive Species advisor

Property Care Association’s only
approved independent surveyor

AJK qualifies as first independent surveyor for the PCA

Ashfield Japanese Knotweed (AJK) has been appointed as the UK’s first approved independent surveyor for the Property Care Association (PCA), having passed detailed qualifying stages.

The PCA has been in existence since 1930 as the leading trade body to provide an industry voice on behalf of all members and to liaise with Government departments, respond to consultation documents and give input to the development of new guidelines. 

It strives to ensure high standards of professionalism and expertise amongst its members, who must be qualified to an approved level in the area of specialty.

AJK will now play a major role for the PCA offering its members independent advice regarding the minimum work required to remove Japanese Knotweed from a site whilst conforming to legislation, Environment Agency guidelines and regulations.

Richard Newis, managing director at AJK, said: “We are delighted to be named as the UK’s first independent surveyor for this leading trade body. This demonstrates our commitment to provide independent advice on Japanese Knotweed and we look forward to working with them.”
