From the June New York issue: Donald Trump’s planned golf course and housing project, about eight
miles outside Aberdeen, Scotland, continues to court opposition.
The project has already received preliminary approval, and
construction may begin early next year. But environmentalists and
residents are still speaking out against the $1.5 billion, 1,400-acre
development, the International Herald Tribune reported. Trump plans to build two golf courses, a 450-room hotel, 950
vacation homes, 500 single-family houses, a conference center and a
golf academy. But Michael Forbes, a fisherman and quarry worker whose
land is in the middle of Trump’s proposed development, has refused to
relocate.
