Trump International Golf Links, Scotland,have submitted multiple planning applications to Aberdeenshire Council this week in preparation for the next major phase of construction and development at Menie Estate.
The applications include detailed plans for a thirty bedroom staff accommodation building and a four-hundred-plus capacity ballroom / banqueting facility with additional hotel accommodation and ancillary leisure facilities adjoining MacLeod House & Lodge hotel. Public notifications (POANs) for the second golf course (The MacLeod Course) and development framework for the other built components of the site.
Donald J. Trump, stated: I consider what we’ve created at Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire to be one of my greatest achievements. We have incredible plans to further develop the site, and along with my investment at Turnberry, my commitment to Scotland is stronger than ever.
A great boost to the region
Ian Armstrong, Regional Director, Scottish Council for Development and Industry, commented: At a time when there are some economic clouds on the horizon, the announcement of the plans by The Trump Organisation for further substantial investment in their site at Menie is a great boost to the region. The significance of a major international investor looking beyond short-term issues and adopting a long-term view should not be underestimated in terms of the fillip it provides to the North East of Scotland and its economy.
Robert Collier, Chief Executive, Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, said: The business community in the North East will be pleased to welcome the continued investment in Trump International Golf Links. On top of the championship links course, five-star accommodation and a new clubhouse opening in May, the plans for a second course, banqueting facilities, infrastructure and a refreshed master plan are confirmation that investment in the site continues to build a valuable asset for the region.
With plans at Trump International Golf Links, Scotland, now full steam ahead once again, further applications for leisure and residential units are intended for later in the year.
