Amendment to the construction hours and permit expiry date for the approved Fibreco Terminal Enhancement Project

The permit holder, Fibreco Export Incorporated, proposes to complete approved stormwater outfall installation and dredging beyond port authority standard hours, during low tide. This requires an amendment to condition 24 of the original permit (PER No. 16-268). It is likely that the works will occur during port authority standard hours (Monday to Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.), however, the permit holder is requesting approval to undertake works 24 hours a days, seven days a week, if required. Temporary lighting for night works would be directed down and away from residential lines of sight as much as possible. Potential sources of noise would include movement from an excavator, and a clamshell dredger in conjunction with a barge.  

The permit holder is also requesting an extension to the permit expiry date from December 31, 2020 to February 28, 2022. This extension is requested to account for construction delays, and the requirement to conduct in-water works outside the fisheries sensitive period, which ends on August 15, 2021.
