District of North Vancouver Designated Anchorage Area

November 6, 2020

Project status

Permit issued

In June 2021, a project permit was issued to the District of North Vancouver to install a Designated Anchorage Area, located in Deep Cover in North Vancouver, British Columbia on federal waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

The project was approved subject to 28 permit conditions that the District of North Vancouver must meet to ensure the project does not result in significant adverse environmental effects.

About the proposed project 

The District of North Vancouver proposes to install a designated anchorage area in Deep Cove. The designated anchorage area is proposed to address concerns over long- term boat anchorage in Deep Cove. The designated anchorage area would allow the District to restrict the number of anchorages, designate specific mooring locations, and limit the amount of time boats could remain anchored in Deep Cove.

The works include installation of four Transport Canada compliant mooring buoys on the south side of Deep Cove. Mooring hardware includes anchor, ground chain, mooring chain, and shackles.
