PRESS RELEASE: KGPC Supports Fight Against ClubLink

The Kanata Greenspace Protection Coalition is deeply disappointed by today’s announcement from ClubLink, Minto Communities and Richcraft Homes that they have submitted a formal application to the City of Ottawa to redevelop the Kanata Golf and Country Club lands.

Upon purchasing this land in 1996, ClubLink signed on to The 40% Agreement.  In doing so, they agreed to share the use of its 70 plus acres with residents of Kanata forever.  The City of Ottawa informed ClubLink in March that they will pursue a decision in court on this important agreement, should ClubLink make a redevelopment application.  The residents of Kanata Lakes, Beaverbrook and neighbourhoods across Kanata North are vehemently opposed to ClubLinks plan and will continue to aid the City’s ongoing efforts.

BREAKING: ClubLink submits controversial application to pave over much of Kanata golf course

ClubLink submitted to city hall Tuesday morning its controversial planning application to redevelop 71 hectares of land at the Kanata Golf and Country Club. The golf company is working with Minto Communities and Richcraft Homes to turn the golf course into a suburban infill neighbourhood. According to the development scheme, 53 per cent of the land would be redeveloped for homes, 20 per cent of the land would be for new roads and 27 per cent would be for green space, parks and ponds.

PRESS RELEASE: Kanata Greenspace Steering Committee Creates Not-For-Profit Corporation

The Kanata Greenspace Steering Committee is making big and important changes.  We’ve created a not-for-profit corporation to provide our Kanata North community and its residents with a focussed and reliable resource to advocate not only for the protection of our green, open and undeveloped spaces today but also their preservation for the future.  We’ve also changed our name to the Kanata Greenspace Protection Coalition.
