On December 19, 2012, Port Metro Vancouver issued a project permit to Coriolis Consulting Corporation, working on behalf of the Harbour Air Group, to construct additional float plane facilities.
About the project
The proposed project would construct float planes facilities west of the existing Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre’s (VHFC) facilities located in front of Vancouver Convention Center - West.
Harbour Air proposes to expand the VHFC facility for use by its fleet of aircraft. The expansion consists of an additional float parallel to and west of the existing two main moorage floats. Under the proposal, the Port would need to expand the water area under lease to VHFC for the purposes of operating the terminal to accommodate all the aircraft operated by Harbour Air at the facility.
Port Metro Vancouver will review the portion of the proposed facility within Port controlled water, north of the jurisdictional boundary that divides fee simple water owned by the Province of British Columbia from that managed by the Port.
As part of the application process, the Coriolis Consulting Group will undertake marine stakeholder engagement to review navigational impacts of the proposal.
