The Donald Trumped By A Golf Course?
Donald Trump is one of the greatest real estate developers in the world and he’s single-handedly taken on the real estate development industry. But with that being said, not even he can get away with harming the environment. Trump is contemplating halting operations on a $2 billion golf course project on the Scottish Coast since environmentalists are up in arms over the development of the historic Scottish land. Environmentalists in the area are against moving forward, and this may end up being the end all for the project. Plans for the Scottish golf resort are quite lavish which is no surprise to those who are familiar with other Trump developments. There are many people who are all for the new development, but at the same time there are ecologists in the area who are not so happy about destroying the natural area in order to construct two golf courses.
Ecologists and birdwatchers fear that the species of the area will be harmed if construction continues to progress in the area. They argue that the areas ecology will be harmed beyond repair leaving a once pristine land scarred with fairways and greens. In February 2007 both economic and environmental assessments will be submitted to the planners in the area. They will then take everything into consideration and determine what types of obstacles are in the way for development. Momentum is growing in favor of the ecologist, but as we all know, the Donald is always up for a good fight.
Trump’s team has suggested that they are willing to work with the area in order to ensure that everybody gets what is best. They have no problems with altering the Scottish golf resort in order to meet the needs of the environment, as well as the golf community. It will be interesting to see how this plan unfolds as 2007 gets underway.
