Case 23016 - Residential Development at The Links at Brunello Golf Course, Timberlea



We received an application for changes to the planned community at the Links at Brunello in Timberlea. If approved, the changes would:  

  • Move the "Golf Course Safety Margin" shown in the existing comprehensive development agreement;
  • Modify some locations approved for residential development; and  
  • Change the mix of houses, duplexes and townhouses permitted around holes 1, 2, 9 and 16 of the golf course.

The development plans linked below describe the requested changes.

Existing Development Agreement

The planned community was permitted through a development agreement originally approved in 2002. It permits a mixed-use golf community including different types of dwellings (apartment buildings, duplexes, townhouses and houses) and commercial uses surrounding the Links at Brunello golf course in Timberlea. 
View a consolidated version of the original development agreement and subsequent amendments  and the schedules to the development agreement..


The application will follow the Substantive Amendment to Development Agreement process.


View a narrated PowerPoint presentation explaining the proposed amendments. Feedback provided to the planner will be summarized in the staff report to Halifax and West Community Council. 

The Halifax and West Community Council will decide whether to approve or deny the application based on the criteria in the Timberlea/Lakeside/Beechville Municipal Planning Strategy
