Location
The subject lands are located in part of Lots 43 and 44, Concession 16, Smith Ward, Township of Selwyn. A key map is provided which indicates the location of the lands that are subject to the proposed OPA and ZBLA. The lands are known municipally as 3340 Strickers Lane.

Purpose and Effect of the Applications
The purpose of the applications is to permit an expansion to the existing Lovesick Lake Trailer Park. The expansion originally proposed a total of 46 additional trailer sites, but has been reduced to a total of 40 additional trailer sites to accommodate a larger sewage servicing area. The portion of the property subject to the Amendment is approximately 8.16 hectares (20 acres) in area.

The applications will require a related consent (severance) application for the purposes of a lot addition, which has not yet been submitted. The lot addition serves to provide the subject property with road frontage and access from Forest Hill Road.

The subject lands are currently designated Seasonal Residential, Rural and Environmental Constraint in the Official Plan and zoned Rural (RU), Recreation Commercial (RC) and Environmental Protection (EP) in the Township of Selwyn Zoning By-law. The proposed amendments would have the effect of amending the current designation and zone on the subject lands to permit the proposed additional trailer sites. No changes are proposed to the area within the Environmental Constraint designation/Environmental Protection (EP) zone.
