Despite the Oakville Town Council declaring the property a Heritage Landscape, the owners, ClubLink are appealing the decision and are also appealing the rejection by the Council of their development application to build over 3,000 homes, plus retail and commercial space. The owners now want to demolish the property despite being denied permission to build.
Our Town via its unanimous Council decisions, the Halton Regional Chair, Gary Carr, our MPP Kevin Flynn and the vast majority of residents have clearly said they want this destruction of the heart of Oakville stopped.
Despite this massive opposition the decision may rest in the hands of the unelected Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).
New legislation (Bill139) is replacing the OMB with a new governing body (LPAT). The LPAT will be required to give greater weight to planning decisions of local councils. However, currently the LPAT will not rule on the Glen Abbey case because of the initial date of the ClubLink redevelopment application. We need the Provincial Government to backdate Bill 139 to May 2017, in order for the newly formed LPAT to oversee the ClubLink initiated appeal.
