    Donald Trump is considering an appeal after his plans to create a £1bn golf resort were rejected by councillors. The US billionaire, who wants to build a golf complex and housing development at the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire, said he was surprised by the decision.
    The controversial project was given outline planning approval last week, but then went to Aberdeenshire Council’s infrastructure committee.
    It rejected the plans on the chairman’s casting vote after a tied vote.
    A spokeswoman for Mr Trump told BBC Scotland: “We are surprised by the decision, it would have been a great development.
    “We are considering an appeal, and also considering doing something very spectacular in another location. Sadly, it will not be in Scotland.”

    That is very surprising - £1bn would go a very long way to developing the area and bringing more money, jobs and homes to the area.

    it could also bring rich pratts driving about in 4x4 and destroying the local's lifestyle and making property prices way too expensive for locals to afford.
