Public Meetings in Oakville to Address Glen Abbey Plans
Public meetings and a proposed official plan amendment for Glen Abbey are on the agenda at Oakville Town Hall.
Twenty days later, a statutory public meeting is taking place.
Then Jan. 30 meetings gives the public an opportunity to provide oral submissions to the planning and development council regarding the proposed official planning amendment.
The planning services department will be presenting a recommendation report with respect to the proposed official plan amendment at that meeting.
The purpose of the proposed official plan amendment to the Livable Oakville Plan is to provide the framework to recognize special policy areas for heritage conservation districts and cultural heritage landscapes protected under the Ontario Heritage Act; and look at land use designations and policies to support the protection, management and use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course cultural heritage landscape in a manner that ensures its cultural heritage value or interest is retained.
The effect of the proposed official plan amendment to the Livable Oakville Plan is to:
- Add a new subsection entitled "Heritage Conservation Districts and Cultural Heritage Landscapes" to section 26, Special Policy Areas.
- Change the Low Density Residential land use designation applying to a portion of the Glen Abbey property (adjacent to Golfview Court) to Private Open Space on Schedule H, West Land Use.
- Identify a new Special Policy Area applying to the Glen Abbey Golf Course on Schedule H, West Land Use, and Schedule I, Central Land Use.
- Add new policies for the Glen Abbey Golf Course cultural heritage landscape to section 26, Special Policy Areas.
- Delete the existing site-specific exception policies applying to the Glen Abbey property from section 27.3, West Exceptions.
This official plan amendment affects the Livable Oakville Plan area, being all lands south of Dundas St. and north of Hwy. 407, and also 1333 Dorval Dr. (on the east side of Dorval, south of Upper Middle Rd. W.).
In addition to the proposed official plan amendment, the Town is also considering a site-specific zoning by-law amendment for the Glen Abbey property (File Z.1519.10), which will conform to the proposed official plan amendment, to regulate the use of the Glen Abbey property, and the erection, location and use of buildings and structures thereon.
A statutory public meeting was held by Town Council in respect of the proposed zoning by-law amendment on December 6, 2017.
