ClubLink appealed Council’s decision of September 27, 2017 to refuse its applications to redevelop the Glen Abbey Golf Course to the OMB (now LPAT) on October 10, 2017. Pre-hearings took place at Town Hall on April 27, 2018 and November 29, 2018. Under the transition rules established for the new LPAT, this hearing will continue under the process in place at the time the appeal was launched.
The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) scheduled the hearing regarding the Glen Abbey development applications for July 6 to November 20, 2020. The Region of Halton, Conservation Halton and the Fairway Hills Residents Association have been made parties to the hearing on Glen Abbey development applications. An issues list and draft Procedural Order for the hearing is currently in the process of being finalized.
A further pre-hearing conference on Glen Abbey development applications will take place on November 15, 2019. The purpose of the further pre-hearing is to update the Tribunal on the status of the town’s pending appeal before the Court of Appeal regarding ClubLink’s application under the Ontario Heritage Act to demolish the golf course, and to provide an opportunity to revisit both the issues list and the Tribunal’s Procedural Order for the hearing, as may be required, in order to address the disposition of the phasing motion and any other procedural matters that may arise. This pre-hearing conference will also be the time that the Tribunal will identify the list of participants, which will include those who have indicated to date their intention to be a participant in the hearing
In addition, the town’s motion requesting an order that the hearing on the Glen Abbey development applications be phased, whereby there would be a determination by the LPAT on the principle of the redevelopment first before addressing the technical issues of the subdivision, will be heard at 9:00 a.m. at Town Hall on March 27, 2019.
