An expansion planned at a trailer park south of Consecon will move ahead despite concerns from residents and neighbours.
Tuesday night council approved a motion to allow Bay Meadows Park to add 23 trailer sites to the already 153 lot park.
Four residents addressed the horseshoe expressing how they are concerned about environmental impacts from sewage on Pleasant Bay, noise, light and dust.
Ruth Victor of Ruth Victor & Associates is the agent acting on behalf of the park and she says she is pleased with council’s decision.
John Ralph has lived in the park south of Conceson for 23 years. He said he is disappointed with the decision but even more so with the fact the trailer park will now be enforcing a clause in their lease requiring residents to reside at the park for 50 weeks out of the year instead of the full 52.
A few councillors including Jamie Forrester who owns a camp ground voiced his objection about the 50 week deal asking Commissioner of Engineering, Development and Works Robert McAuley if there was a work around.
McAuley sais if they took that out of the zoning agreement then there would be a number of planning triggers that would get pulled and the municipality would have to take care of sewage at the park.
The issue was raised at a previous meeting when council learned that residents were living at the seasonally zoned park year round.
