Trump wants more land for Aberdeenshire project

6.26am 11th May 2009 - Course Development

Local news sources report that the Trump Organisation is offering to buy more land as part of the £1bn golf development in Aberdeenshire.

According to both BBC Scotland and the Scottish Daily Record, “Donald Trump looks to expand planned Scots golf resort.”

US tycoon Donald Trump’s proposal at Menie has seen residents approached in the past week, with half a dozen letters requesting amicable discussions.

Aberdeenshire Council has confirmed it has been advised further applications for outline planning permission for additional areas may be lodged saying, “We have been advised that the applications will be for development on areas of land not currently owned by the organisation.

“It is important to stress that land ownership is not a planning consideration. If the applications are supported, it would be up to the developer to ensure the land is in their ownership before proceeding with development.”

It is believed about 50 acres are involved.
