Trump's golf development plans obtained under FOI

Plans by billionaire tycoon Donald Trump to build the "world's greatest golf course" in Scotland could be blocked by proposals to include the development of hundreds of homes in the luxury resort.

Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the Trump Organisation is proposing to build 250 properties - 100 houses and 150 flats - on the site as part of the £300 million golf development on a stretch of environmentally sensitive links land on the Menie Estate, near Balmedie in Aberdeenshire.
