  • The 294 ( 300 ) RV expansion site was submitted to Peterborough County and a Selwyn Township Planning Departments last August   in 2016  as an ‘ Complete Application.” It appears to be on hold as  many adjustments to the plan need to be  made before it can go ahead. it was a formal application to  these two planning departments. and so would  now in 2017 – not be considered a new application. Gerry Herron, Selwyn councillor , indicated to two Lovesick Lake Association  committee members that the proponents intend to develop this large expansion over 15 years, once they comply with the Planning Departments demands.
