Formal approval for Trump resort

Donald Trump
Donald Trump says the resort will be the world's best

Outline planning permission has been issued for Donald Trump's 1bn golf project in Aberdeenshire by the Scottish Government.

Notice of the intention to grant the consent had previously been given.

Mr Trump has vowed the golf resort, at Menie, north of Aberdeen, will be the greatest in the world.

His plan to build two golf courses, as well as hundreds of homes, has caused business and environmental division for more than two years.

The plan was called in by the Scottish Government after it was rejected by an Aberdeenshire Council committee.

Finance Secretary John Swinney backed it after a public local inquiry.
