Trump submits plan for scaled-back Menie clubhouse
August 7 2014scaled back plans for a clubhouse at Trump International Golf Club, Aberdeenshire, in the latest salvo of an ongoing battle to block construction of wind farms off the Balmedie coast.
Designed by Covell Matthews Architects the revised clubhouse will be built on the site of existing temporary facilities, which must be removed by June 2015 and will echo the B-listed MacLeod House with random rubble granite and dressed stone features.
A terrace stretching the full length of the building will offer views towards the course along with traditional gables. In the building’s design statement Trump Scotland declared: “The elevations exude the quality of architecture that Aberdeen is famous for.”
Trump dropped plans for the previous huge hotel and second course in an effort to prevent construction of 11 turbines which would be visible from the shore.
In a statement the organisation said: “Although the Trump Organisation is prepared to proceed with the hotel and residential components within the resort, the extensive plans for future phases of the development are, however, currently on hold until the threat of the proposed industrial energy plant (European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre) is totally removed.”
