Giant's Causeway golf course

A judge has given the all clear for work to begin on a controversial £100 million golf course development near the famous Giant's Causeway on Ulster's north coast.

National Trust claimed course would impact site

The National Trust claimed that building a £100 million golf course near Giant's Causeway could have a serious impact on the UNESCO designated world heritage site.

Their legal challenge was dismissed and more than a decade after the initial planning application was launched, Mr Justice Weatherup gave the go-ahead to the project which will be about a mile-and-a-half away from the Causeway.
