Council voted unanimously at Planning and Development Council on Tuesday night to extend Interim Control By-law 2016-24 (ICB) that restricts the use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses for one additional year. The ICB was originally passed on February 1, 2016 and with a one-year extension, will now remain in effect up to and including January 31, 2018.
In the meeting, Mark H. Simeoni, director, Planning Services Department, updated Council on the status of the key planning studies underway and explained the town’s reasons for recommending an extension to the ICB.
The status of the key studies is outlined below:
Section 38 of the Planning Act (Ont.) permits a municipality to pass an ICB for up to a year (with the right to extend the by-law for a further year) in order to complete a review or study of land use policies in the municipality.
Club Link, the owners of Glen Abbey, has appealed the town’s ICB to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). The hearing on this appeal is scheduled to begin on January 30, 2017 at Town Hall.
