Oakville residents wanting to know more about ClubLink’s development application for the Glen Abbey golf course property at 1333 Dorval Dr. can attend an open house later this month.

On Wednesday, July 19, the Town of Oakville’s Planning Services department will be hosting a public meeting to offer more details on property owners ClubLink’s application for the Glen Abbey lands, containing the golf course, recently deemed complete by the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

To be held at Town Hall, South Atrium, 1225 Trafalgar Rd., the meeting will have a drop-in format and will occur over two time slots — from 3-5 p.m. and from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The purpose of the gathering is to provide the general public with the opportunity to hear details about the proposed redevelopment of the Glen Abbey golf course and to provide Town staff with initial feedback.

The proposed redevelopment of the Glen Abbey golf course by ClubLink, submitted in an application to the Town on Nov. 10, 2016, consists of an Official Plan amendment, a Zoning Bylaw amendment and a plan of subdivision providing for a mixed-use residential and commercial development consisting of 3,222 residential units (141 single-detached dwellings, 299 townhouse units and 2,782 apartment units), 121,000 sq. ft. of new commercial space and about 124 acres of permanent, publicly-accessible green space.

A formal public meeting will be held in front of Town council in the near future.

The OMB deemed ClubLink’s application complete as of its decision June 7 and was publicly-released June 22, after three months of considering evidence and testimony presented by the Town of Oakville and ClubLink at a one-day hearing in March.

The application decision came hot on the heels of a separate ruling by the OMB, which sided with the Town last month on keeping its interim control bylaw (ICBL) and one-year extension in place until Jan. 31, 2018.

The ICBL was deemed appropriate and necessary to examine the implications of ClubLink’s proposed development at the 1333 Dorval Dr. property.

The bylaw temporarily blocks development of the lands.

Under the Planning Act, the Town now has 120 days to consider and decide on the merits of the application for rezoning (Oct. 5) and 180 days to consider and decide on the merits of the application for an Official Plan Amendment (Dec. 4) to permit the complete redevelopment of the golf course.

If the Town does not make a decision within this timeframe, ClubLink would be in a position to appeal its applications directly to the OMB for decision.

Those who can’t attend the July 19 meeting can make submit feedback to Council by mail - c/o the Town Clerk in the Clerk’s Department, 1225 Trafalgar Rd., Oakville, Ontario L6H-0H3 or by email to

Residents wishing to be notified of the Town’s decision on the proposed Official Plan amendment, zoning bylaw amendment and the proposed plan of subdivision must make a written request to the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, 1225 Trafalgar Rd., Oakville, ON L6H-0H3 or at
