Council approves more conservation measures for Glen Abbey Golf Course
Oakville Council approved additional planning and conservation measures designed to conserve the cultural heritage value and attributes of the Glen Abbey Golf Course at its Planning and Development Council meeting on Tuesday night.

These measures included specific official plan and zoning amendments, a Cultural Heritage Landscape Conservation Plan by-law, and a Cultural Heritage Landscape Conservation Plan for the Glen Abbey property.

Staff also tabled proposed amendments to existing town site alteration, private tree protection and property standards by-laws with respect to cultural heritage landscapes and protected heritage properties. All of these measures have helped further the town's implementation of the planning and cultural heritage studies that were undertaken while the town's interim control by-law (ICB) restricted Glen Abbey to its existing uses.
