Pledge on use of CPOs
Time to move on with Menie project
THE pledge by Donald Trump not to request the use of compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) by Aberdeenshire Council on properties surrounding his development at Menie is a welcome move and one that should be used by both sides as a signal to move on.
Those who own the properties bordering the golf resort who feared they would be subjected to CPOs have now been assured that they can stay in their homes. They are also free to agree a fair deal with the Trump organisation to sell their properties. The choice is theirs alone.
The protest groups who have latched on to the property owners as a way of furthering their cause can now leave them in peace.
