New housing project in Scotland gets approval

New housing project in Scotland gets approval

The Scottish government has given its approval to a new scheme that will include the creation of 500 new homes for sale, something that may benefit first-time buyers.

Following a public inquiry the green light has been given to the proposed Trump International Golf Links Scotland project at Balmedie, near Aberdeen, which has been proposed by US entrepreneur Donald Trump.

Confirming the decision, finance minister John Swinney stated: "The reporters found there was significant economic and social benefit to be gained from this project, which has been a major consideration in my decision to grant outline planning permission."

In addition to the homes, the resort will provide holiday apartments and a hotel to serve the golfing resort.

The new resort is the second announcement in a week concerning a proposed sporting development that also involves building new homes.

Housing, shops and public spaces form part of the blueprint for newly-unveiled plans by Premiership football club Tottenham Hotspur to expand its White Hart Lane stadium.
