Council to debate interim control by-law on Glen Abbey Golf Course at its February 1, 2016 meeting

Fri, 29 Jan 2016

A staff recommendation for Council to pass an Interim Control By-law (ICB) to restrict the use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses for a period of one year will be debated by Oakville Council on February 1, 2016. The ICB is being recommended by staff to allow sufficient time for the town to complete planning studies including:

  • an Urban Structure review;
  • a Land Use Economic and Impact Analysis study; and
  • the Cultural Heritage Landscapes assessment of the Glen Abbey Golf Course.

Section 38 of the Planning Act (Ont.) permits a municipality to pass an ICB for up to a year (with the right to extend the by-law for a further year) in order to complete a review or study of land use policies in the municipality, or a defined part of the municipality.
