American tycoon Donald Trump is taking legal action to challenge the Scottish government's decision to approve an offshore wind farm near his luxury golf resort.

The Trump Organization said it has lodged a petition with Scotland's Court of Session.

The company is asking for a judicial review of the decision by Scottish officials to approve the £230 million (NZ$430m) development, which consists of 11 wind turbines planned off the coast near Aberdeen in northeastern Scotland. 

Trump is concerned the turbines will spoil sea views for golfers at his sprawling resort.

He argues that Scottish officials did not give his company a fair hearing and that there was a bias against him because the Scottish government appeared to have a financial stake in the wind project.
