Tuesday D-Day for Nicklaus course at Ury Estate, Stonehaven
FM Group, the developers behind the transformation of the Ury estate near Stonehaven, are hoping for a positive planning decision next week after satisfying almost every issue raised by consultees.
The plans for a £80m world-class golf development, designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, go before local Councillors on Tuesday, March 22.
Jonathon Milne, director of FM Group, said: “This development, which has been several years in the making, has always represented a major opportunity for the region. However, at this time of crisis in the North-east due to the low oil price, the opportunity to create 200 jobs and a new world-class golf tourism destination that will generate £55.5million into the local economy cannot be passed up.
Following extensive studies and work by FM Group’s team of experts and by Jack Nicklaus in redesigning part of the course, all but one of the concerns raised have been addressed.
