Campaigners hail benefit of windfarm as Trump takes battle to Supreme Court

09/10/2015

Donald Trump took his latest objection to plans for an offshore windfarm near his north-east golf resort to the Supreme Court yesterday. The US tycoon is appealing against the Scottish Government’s decision to approve the 11-turbine scheme at Aberdeen Bay amid fears it will spoil the views from his golf resort at Menie, near Balmedie. But last night the presidential candidate was accused of trying to “kill off” economically beneficial projects, and was urged instead to “do good” with his wealth. WWF Scotland director Lang Banks said Mr Trump was “wrong to be trying to frustrate Scotland’s ambition to create clean power and green jobs”.
