Detailed images of what the controversial development at Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf course could look like have been released to the public.
On Thursday the local government, by a majority of 14, voted to to approve the creation of 500-homes, as well as shops, restaurants and 50 holiday homes, at the Menie Estate near Balmedie, despite thousands of objections.
Detailed artists’ impressions showing what the community hall and MacLeod square, which will be named after the US presidents mother, could look like are now available to view online.
The proposed 450 bed hotel has been scrapped, with the organisation blaming poor market conditions and a surplus of hotels in the North-east.
The Trump organisation claimed 2,000 jobs will be created as a result of the development, while local estate agents Aberdein Considine has said nearly 500 people have already expressed interest in the first 82 properties.
Sarah Malone, executive vice president of Trump International Scotland, said: “This is a unique development on an incredible stretch of land, spanning the spectacular north-east coastline.
“We have been overwhelmed by the support this project has received and greatly look forward to taking this important next phase of development forward.
“Mature woodlands, panoramic sea views, rolling valleys and access to our highly acclaimed, world-class, golf and leisure facilities set the Trump Estate apart as a premium, distinct and very special place to live.”
The developer has announced an open day for Thursday to allow members of the public to view the proposed plans.
