A staff recommendation for Council to pass an Interim Control By-law (ICB) to restrict the use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course to its existing uses for a period of one year will be debated by Oakville Council on February 1, 2016. The ICB is being recommended by staff to allow sufficient time for the town to complete planning studies including:

a. an Urban Structure review;

b. a Land Use Economic and Impact Analysis study; and

c. the Cultural Heritage Landscapes assessment of the Glen Abbey Golf Course.

In 2000, Tiger Woods hit the shot of the year out of a fairway bunker on the 72nd hole of the Canadian Open to win by a single stroke. The first-ever solo design of the legendary Jack Nicklaus created more history in 2009 as the site of a record 25th RBC Canadian Open, a PGA Tour event, during the 100th playing of Canada’s national championship. – Club Link Glen Abbey Website

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, or a defined part of the municipality.
