Salmond Welcomes Aberdeenshire Ranking for Quality of Life

>> 22 December 2012

The news that Aberdeenshire has topped the rankings of a new Bank of Scotland quality of life survey has been welcomed by Alex Salmond, MSP for Aberdeenshire East.

The survey assessed health, life expectancy, employment, school performance and climate and rated Aberdeenshire as the top place to live in Scotland for quality of life for the fourth time in the last seven years.

Commenting on the Bank of Scotland survey, Aberdeenshire East MSP, Alex Salmond said:

“This is a great news for Aberdeenshire, although we must not be complacent given the many issues that are currently facing our coastal towns and rural villages.

“Aberdeenshire benefits from excellent community spirit and empowerment. This is evident from local campaigns on health services at Pitmedden and Tarves, to the first community-owned and operated wind turbine of its kind on the Scottish mainland at Udny.

“Community participation in local amenities has also been a great success, as we have seen at Strichen Community Lake, and countless other examples across Aberdeenshire.

“People in Aberdeenshire are rightly proud of the communities they have built and which make the region such a fantastic place to live and I am sure they will be delighted that the quality of life in Aberdeenshire has again been recognised with this survey."
