Offshore wind farm plan opposed by Donald Trump is delayed

Plans for an offshore wind farm which could be seen from Donald Trump’s golf resort in Aberdeenshire have been put back by two years.

Mr Trump claims the £230m European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) would spoil the view from his golf course at Menie.

The US businessman wants the decision to approve the project overturned.

Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited has announced it will now be looking to connect to the grid in 2017.

The Scottish government wants the legal challenge, which was heard at the Court of Session last month, dismissed.

In October, the plans for the wind turbine testing centre in Aberdeen Bay suffered a major setback.

Aberdeenshire councillors rejected a planning application to build an electricity substation for the development.
