The Ministry of Lands, Forest and Natural Resources is currently holding a comment period related to a proposed change to some land use in an area of the Prince Rupert Industrial Park, part of an application from Amix Real Estate Holdings.
The application which is posted on the government department website, outlines an amendment to the current use of the land as Log Handling/Storage, with the applicant looking to add a fuel transfer operation.
This is an application to amend the use of an existing Licence of Occupation, licence #SK916696. The current use is Log Handling/Storage. The requested use is Commercial General A.
The project is a fuel transfer operation where diesel fuel and gasoline would be barded to the site and fuel transferred from transport barge to the storage barge A.T.L. 810 and then transferred as needed from the storage barge either to a truck loading arrangement on the shore and loaded into trucks or to a loading arrangement on the storage barge capable of delivering to smaller vessels.
The applicant owns the adjacent upland property (171 Mish-Aw Road Prince Rupert).
The Synopsis for the Application notes that the property is zoned as M3 with a range of permitted uses which include: (c) Marine transportation, (e) Transportation terminal, (f) Bulk commodity storage and terminal, (h) General industrial, (i) Marine commercial, & (j) Marine fuel station.
