The Ontario Municipal Board has rejected ClubLink’s appeal by upholding the town’s Interim Control By-law (ICBL) and its one year extension, concluding that the ICBL was appropriate and necessary. The Board’s decision noted that the town’s ICBL was based on a legitimate planning rationale, was enacted in good faith, and was in conformity with the Region of Halton Official Plan and the Provincial Growth Plan.

“Council is very pleased that the Board recognized that the magnitude of the Glen Abbey proposal and its potential for impact on the community warrant further study,” Mayor Burton said. “Our Livable Oakville Official Plan specifically identifies suitable growth areas in order to protect the character of our stable residential neighbourhoods and Council looks forward to hearing the results of the town’s studies.”

The world-famous property is also home to the Academies of ClubLink, the headquarters of Golf Canada, the Canadian Golf Museum and Hall of Fame, and the TaylorMade Performance Lab – ClubLink

The OMB’s decision ensures the town will have sufficient time to complete its studies on the Glen Abbey property. Staff will be reporting to Council over the next month on all three studies. Any further work directed by Council as a result of the studies is expected to be completed before the ICBL expires on February 1, 2018.

The ICBL, originally passed on February 1, 2016 with a one-year extension, will now remain in effect up to January 31, 2018. Section 38 of the Planning Act (Ont.) permits a municipality to pass an ICBL 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.
