ClubLink Seeks to Demolish Oakville's Glen Abbey Golf Course
ClubLink is filing an application to remove and demolish Oakville’s beloved Glen Abbey Golf Course and all buildings on the land - aside from the ones covered under the redevelopment proposal - the company announced Monday.
"The town simply cannot use the Heritage Act to mandate land use," said ClubLink CEO Rai Sahi in a news release, adding “that’s simply not how the Ontario Heritage Act works.”
ClubLink is proposing a mixed complex which includes 3,222 residential units, 121,000 square feet of commercial space and roughly 124 acres of permanent, publicly-accessible green space.
But town council unanimously voted to designate the site a heritage property last month.
The application is in response to planning and development council’s decision to pass a notice of intention designating the property under the Ontario Heritage Act.
Sahi is calling ClubLink’s plans “an incredible opportunity and an enormous public benefit for the people of Oakville and the surrounding regions."
A special meeting of planning and development council is taking place on Sept. 26 regarding the future of 1333 Dorval Dr.
