Plans for an £80m golf development, backed by veteran Jack Nicklaus, are to be reconsidered despite already having been approved by councillors.

Aberdeenshire Council backed plans for a course and 90 homes near Stonehaven in April.

However, a court ruling has since found developers no longer need to contribute to a fund covering infrastructure changes.

Councillors will be asked next week if they still back the plans.

The vote follows a Court of Session ruling in favour of developers who questioned their financial obligations.
