Donald Trump’s much-maligned project for a £1bn golf resort in Aberdeenshire has been subject to angry scenes as blueprints for the project were shown to the public for the first time today.
The details of the plan for Menie, north of Aberdeen, are being shown at a two-day event at the Udny Arms Hotel in Newburgh and several people turned out to voice their continued opposition to the plans.
The project has been blighted by Menie residents’ vociferous protests against the plans which could see them forced off their land to make way for the project by way of compulsory purchase orders.
One of the protesters, Mr David Milne was apparently invited to view the plans by the company but on arrival was told to ‘clear off’ by the project director, Neil Hobday.
The blueprints for the project included detailed information on environmental, landscaping, construction and infrastructure plans, and the project will be considered by Aberdeenshire Council later in the year.
At the time of the submission of the plans, Mr Trump said it was a giant step towards the tycoon’s goal of creating the world’s greatest golf course and resort.
A campaign – Tripping Up Trump – has been created to oppose the plans and has said it will support those families which are most at threat by Trump’s plans.
