On December 5, 2017, town staff presented to Planning and Development Council for public feedback the first of several upcoming initiatives to protect the cultural heritage value, interest and attributes of the Glen Abbey Golf Course. A proposed amendment to Zoning By-law 2014-014 would regulate the use of the Glen Abbey property, and the erection, location and use of buildings and structures on the property, in a manner that supports the conservation of this cultural heritage landscape. A recommendation report will be brought back to Planning and Development Council for decision on January 30, 2018.

Several additional matters to support the conservation of Glen Abbey as a cultural heritage landscape will be coming forward within the next few weeks.
