‘Destroyed’ dunes on Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf course to lose special status : The Telegraph


The sand dunes at Donald Trump’s golf resort in the north of Scotland are set to lose their protected status after experts accused the US President’s seaside course of “destroying” the habitat.

The Scottish Government agency Scottish Natural Heritage has recommended that the area should lose its status as a nationally important site of special scientific interest (SSSI).

It said there was no longer any reason to protect the dunes at Menie, north of Aberdeen, as they did not include enough special features to warrant designation.

SNH said evidence showed permanent habitat loss following the construction of fairways and greens, and that the stabilisation of mobile sand dunes had “destroyed the dynamic nature of the site”.
