Hoskins fleshes out Trump masterplan
As a detailed masterplan is submitted by Gareth Hoskins Architects for the Trump International Golf Links the practice have published the first indicative images of how architecture on site may look.

They show a crescent of traditionally styled white washed homes fronting parkland at the heart of a planned residential estate of 500 homes and hint at the massing of a dominant hotel tower.

Detailed environmental, landscaping, infrastructure and construction information is contained in the plans and will be assessed by Aberdeenshire Council planners in conjunction with statutory bodies.

The move is required under law in advance of a full planning application being submitted, a landmark which is still at least three months away.

A public exhibition showcasing the plans will be held at the Udny Arms Hotel in Newburgh on March 12-13.

I'm sure those who are going to be evicted from their homes and land for this will be thrilled to see the pictures. Looks like a Scottish version of Poundbury. Will the tower have a clock? As it's not even designed yet, why is it is the hotel is described as 'iconic'? Is that lazy journalistic shorthand for anything taller than three storeys?

Blue skies and fluffy clouds. Not what the Aberdeenshire coast has for a great deal of the year.

If you did not notice, there is a major world recession and the UK can no longer afford its social security bill. Who do you want to pay the planning objectorsd giros??Lower class sorts like "schemies" & "wegies".

Typical backwards looking scotland

What 'planning objectors giros?' Typical ill-informed comment.

Good. Now maybe you can piss off somewhere else Dave, where your 'wit and insight' and utter lack of point might be appreciated.

Hardly the most revealing images from Hoskins. Look remarkably like the sort of renderings I've seen Duany use.

That, Dave Anderson, is possibly because between your ears is wood. Until you have anything pertinent and informed to say, then try to resist clogging up the comments section with further juvenile nonsense.

'a crescent of traditionally styled white washed homes'
The local vernacular is 1 1/2 storey granite built farm houses.
Obviously written by someone who has visited the area as many times as trump himself.

The 20th century local vernacular of Balmedie and Newburgh is the dry-dash bungalow and executive villa with artificial stone dressings i.e. crap. Any argument against development can really only be on SSSI or CPO grounds as it seems likely that the quality of architecture Gareth Hoskins proposes will be superior to anything that bit of coast has seen in decades.

So it's slightly better than existing crap, so that's OK then? Looks like overdevelopment, informed by watching Brigadoon.

I am shocked by the poor, standard of lazy visualisation coming out of Hoskins these days.

They haven't even bothered to photoshop any tartan trousers on to the spectators in image 3.
