Land transfer between province & Oakville will keep Merton Lands protected

The remnants of the Merton Lands, including Deerfield Golf Club, will stay as protected green space, according to the Town of Oakville, after it purchases the property from the province. 

The announcement was made Thursday night, March 22, by Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn at Deerfield. 

The area includes lands that were leased by the Province of Ontario to Deerfield and the sale was contingent on the protection of recreation and conservation lands. 

“We saw what happened when the previous government sold the Saw-Whet Golf Course to the private sector. I am proud that the Ontario government … will protect this valuable green space,” said Flynn.

Town of Oakville designates Glen Abbey Golf Course under Ontario Heritage Act

Oakville’s Glen Abbey Golf Course has been designated a property of cultural heritage value or interest under the Ontario Heritage Act. 

Town councillors voted unanimously in favour of the designation Wednesday, Dec. 20 during a specially convened meeting. 

The decision drew applause from around 40 members of the public who were present including members of the Save Glen Abbey Coalition. 

There has been considerable interest in the future of the golf course property at 1333 Dorval Dr., ever since owner ClubLink announced plans to build 3,222 residential units, including nine nine-to-12 storey apartment buildings at the site.

Oakville council unanimously rejects proposal to develop Glen Abbey Golf Course

Oakville’s town council voted unanimously on Wednesday night (Sept. 27) to reject a development proposal that would see more than 3,220 residences built on the famous Glen Abbey Golf Course. 

The decision followed a special meeting of the planning and development council, which lasted for two nights and heard from approximately 25 delegations. 

The issue at hand was Glen Abbey Golf Course owner ClubLink’s application for a zoning change that would allow it to construct 3,222 residential units, 69,000 sq. ft of commercial/retail space and 107,000 sq. ft of office space on the property at 1333 Dorval Dr.
