Hillside Industrial Park, located at Port Mellon on the Sunshine Coast is an industrially-zoned area on Howe Sound.
The idea for Hillside began with concerns over petroleum products stored near commercial and residential areas on the Sunshine Coast. The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) and its Economic Development Commission agreed that the site near Port Mellon would be a suitable location for these fuel tanks.
Since purchasing the land from the Provincial Government in 1992, the concept for a bulk storage facility grew into a plan for a modern, environmentally-sound industrial park. As the planning process moved ahead, it became obvious that the large site could be used for many purposes including a marine terminal.
