Score's policy is to foster good relations with local communities, wherever we operate. The company employs local people whenever possible, and maintains a good relationship with local schools, where Score offers the opportunity for students to become apprentices or to work during school vacations.
Score has funded many local community events, in a number of locations. This trend continues into this millennium with Score backing local events through the distribution of resources and the encouragement of education.Community Projects
Crimond Charitable Trust - 06/01/2011
The Crimond Project has proved to be more difficult than anticipated in terms of gaining outline planning permission. A great number of surveys and reports had to be provided to underpin the application and a number of statutory bodies had to be consulted. The current situation is that the majority of these have been carried out and earlier in the year, planning permission in principle was agreed by the local area committee of Aberdeenshire Council subject to the assent of the outstanding statutory consultees. The key consultees are Aberdeenshire Roads Department for local transport issues and Transport Scotland as the proposed facility will be accessed directly from the main A90 trunk road. There have been requests for additional information which has added to the delays and in late November, Transport Scotland recommended that refusal on the grounds that the proposed access did not meet their criteria in terms of visibility, and traffic safety. Our consultant has met with them and had agreed the basis of a “departure from standard”. Transport Scotland’s formal revised notice to Aberdeenshire Planning is awaited which will allow matters to progress and outline permission to be granted.
The Crimond Charitable Trust has been set up as a mechanism to finance and manage the proposed facility. The Trust is ready to operate as soon as outline planning permission is received.
