Would you like to hold an event in Scott Skinner Square?

Scott Skinner Square is available to be used for public events and activities run by the community and others in the town. In order to obtain permission to use the square you will need to complete an application form which can be obtained from the Aberdeenshire Council Roads Department at: There will be no charge for community or charitable events, but commercial events will be charged a small fee.

If your planned event will cause traffic restrictions in the Square (closure or no parking) a restrictions application would also need to be completed and this can be obtained via the same email. Charges will be levied for such an application.
Details of all costs can be obtained from the Roads Dept. Applications should be submitted at least two weeks before the planned event, unless the event will last for more than five days, in which case applications should be submitted at least three weeks in advance.

If any group needs to use an electricity supply for their event (free of charge) please contact
