Seasonal overnight camping in recreational vehicles and trailers is allowed on Hastings Drive in Long Point — at least for now.
County council has lifted a 30-year-old ban, welcome news for owners of dozens of empty lots on the three-kilometre spit of land on Lake Erie, west of the Long Point causeway. Owners also are newly allowed to install docks, piers and wharfs. But council’s July 12 decision may not be the last word on what’s allowed on Hastings Drive. An appeal almost certainly will be made to the Ontario Municipal Board, a provincial body that has the power to overturn county decisions.
