In September 2020, the Culture and Communities Committee agreed to introduce an Edinburgh Cemetery Tour Guide Registration scheme, which includes a registration fee, Code of Conduct and a request for donated contributions for cemetery maintenance, recognising the costs associated with conservation maintenance and management. At the time, tour guide companies made the case that one registration (and associated fee) per company (rather than per employee) would be reasonable. The current annual registration fee is £90. The scheme is underpinned by the introduction of the Cemetery Management Rules which state that commercial activity must be authorised by the Council. There was an update issued in May, item 7.2.
