I am opposed to the Clublink Redevelopment proposal which would require an official plan amendment, a zoning bylaw amendment, and a plan of subdivision. I am concerned that the potential destruction of the Glen Abbey Golf Course represents a dangerous precedent and would have deleterious effects on the Glen Abbey community, the Town of Oakville and all of Ontario.
The Livable Oakville (Official) Plan was developed following provincial planning policy and approved by the region and the province. Oakville’s growth is commensurate with provincial targets, and planned intensification happens in the six growth corridors in order to avoid urban sprawl. The Glen Abbey Golf Course is not in one of the six growth corridors and consequently allowing the Clublink Redevelopment Application flies in the face of responsible, sustainable and calculated urban planning. The Livable Oakville Plan was created by professional town planners, approved by elected officials and the outcome of a democratic and collaborative effort. Therefore, the Glen Abbey Redevelopment proposal which includes intense development, in an area zoned open space not residential, should be rejected.
