Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment
1333 Dorval Drive (Glen Abbey Golf Course)
Part of Lots 17, 18, 19 and 20, Concession 2 S.D.S.

You are invited to attend and provide input at this meeting hosted by Planning and Development Council.

The purpose of the proposed Town-initiated zoning by-law amendment is to change the zoning regulations for the subject lands to recognize the cultural heritage landscape, the existing golf course use and permitted accessory uses.

The effect of the proposed zoning by-law amendment would be to permit the portion of the existing golf course within the Natural Area (“N”) Zone in the Sixteen Mile Creek valley, and to confirm the accessory uses permitted in conjunction with the golf course. A holding provision (“H” symbol) is also proposed to be applied to a portion of the site where a hotel would be permitted, subject to conditions. A hotel is currently permitted within a defined area of the site, adjacent to the valley and the RayDor Estate building.

The subject land is located on the east side of Dorval Drive, south of Upper Middle Road West.

The Town passed Interim Control By-law No. 2016-024, as amended by By-law No. 2016-115, with respect to the subject lands. The land is also subject to applications, under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P13, by ClubLink Corporation ULC and ClubLink Holdings Ltd. (“ClubLink”) for official plan amendment, zoning by-law amendment and draft plan of subdivision (File No. OPA.1519.09, Z.1519.09 and 24T-17003/1519). At its meeting on September 26 and 27, 2017, Council made a decision to refuse ClubLink’s request for an official plan amendment and application for zoning by-law amendment, and referred ClubLink’s application for approval of the plan of subdivision to the Planning and Development Council meeting on November 6, 2017.
