Town staff is recommending that Council extend Interim Control By-law 2016-024 (ICB), which restricts the use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses, for another year to allow staff more time to complete and implement required studies. Council will consider the request at Planning and Development Council meeting on November 1, 2016. Planning studies underway include:
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. Council approved the ICB on February 1, 2016. Glen Abbey Golf Course owners have appealed the town’s ICB and an Ontario Municipal Board hearing date has been set for January 30, 2017.
Residents who wish to appear before Council as a delegate at the November 1, 2016 meeting may register in person at the meeting, in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 905-815-6015. For those who cannot attend the meetings, they are streamed live on YouTube.
