US billionaire Trump halts Scotland golf course construction due to 'ugly' wind farm

Aberdeen, Thu, 19 Jan 2012 ANI

Aberdeen (Scotland), Jan.19 (ANI): American billionaire businessman Donald Trump has halted work on his luxury golf resort in Aberdeen, Scotland, until a decision is made on an offshore wind farm proposal near the site.


According to The Telegraph, the postponement came as plans for a five-star clubhouse at the site in Aberdeenshire were approved by the local council yesterday.


The Trump Organisation said any future work, including the building of a hotel, will now depend on the decision made by the Scottish Government regarding the application for the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre.


A statement from the Trump Organisation said: "If the north east of Scotland is serious about tourism and creating a global golf destination, it cannot allow the coastline to be ruined by an ugly industrial park - 11 64-storey test turbines - directly off the shoreline."


A planning application for an 11-turbine wind farm off Aberdeen Bay was submitted to Marine Scotland last summer.


The proposal is a 150 million pound joint venture by utility company Vattenfall, engineering firm Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group.


Trump's 750 million pound development on the Menie estate on the Aberdeenshire coast is nearing completion after work began in 2010.


The organisation said it intends to open the championship golf course ahead of schedule at the end of June. (ANI)
