In November 2015, ClubLink began conversation with the Town on a proposal to redevelop the 92.7 hectare Glen Abbey Golf Course property including 3,200 residential units, and 121,000 square feet of new office and retail space. Click here for details on ClubLink's site plan proposal.
The Town is opposed to scheme on the basis that it would destroy a site which the Town believes to be a vital part of Oakville's cultural heritage. Furthermore, the Town believes that the proposed development would grievously damage the Livable Oakville Plan (Oakville's official plan) and set a precedent for unconstrained development throughout Oakville. Click here for details of the Town's position and for current status.
Save Glen Abbey, a grassroots coalition of Oakville residents, has been fighting the proposal in order to protect the Livable Oakville Plan. Click here for their website.
Save Glen Abbey has put together an e-petition:
HELLO ‘SAVE GLEN ABBEY’ SUPPORTERS,
Members of the Save Glen Abbey coalition met with MPP Stephen Crawford and MPP Effie Triantafilopoulos in September. During the meeting it was clear that they both understand that the residents of Oakville do not want the Glen Abbey property developed.
Due to the pandemic, we can no longer collect signatures on a paper petition. SGA asked the MPPs if the Province would consider allowing groups to submit electronic petitions following a process similar to the one already in place at the Federal level. The MPPs explained that if such a system were put in place it would not be ready before the LPAT hearing begins in August. However, MPP Crawford did say that if SGA prepares and gathers signatures on an e-petition he will attempt to present the paper petition and talk to the electronic petition in the Legislature.
Please take a moment to sign the petition here and forward this email to friends who want to preserve this ‘Cultural Heritage Landscape’ for future generations.
Thank you for your continued support. The LPAT hearing will begin in less than 9 months. Let’s be sure our voices are heard.
