The proposed amendment 

Carlson Construction Group proposes to carry out physical activities related to the installation of support piles and repairs to timber components, and the installation of a new geotube until December 31, 2023. This would require an extension to the approved Vito Shipyard Wharf Repairs permit (PER No. 20-010-02), which has an expiry date of December 31, 2022.  

The project has required budget adjustments due to ongoing logistical supply issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic procurement of materials. Previously proposed works are still required and anticipated to commence upon appropriate market conditions, and labour and equipment availability, the project will not be completed prior to December 31, 2022. There are no changes to construction activities or the scope of the work outlined in the approved permit (available here).
