The BBC Scotland report tells us:
The construction of a second golf course at President Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire resort has been approved. The 18-hole MacLeod course is to be built to the south and west of the controversial original course at Menie, built in 2012. It is named after his mother Mary Anne MacLeod, who was born on Lewis but emigrated to New York. Councillors gave construction the go-ahead on Friday, despite local objections.
They do tell us about the locals and SEPA objecting but don’t tell us about the committee which made the decision.
There are 12 members. 4 are SNP. They voted 8 to 4 in favour.
What’s your guess?
