Hopkins Landing Dock Recommended to Close for Repair

In 2022, the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) engaged a contractor to carry out a structural inspection of the Hopkins Landing dock. The contractor’s report from April 2023 found that the dock was no longer in serviceable condition.

Staff took immediate action by installing signage at the dock informing the public that they can use the dock at their own risk and that public gatherings were not permitted on the dock.

At the June 15, 2023 Electoral Area Services Committee meeting, following a staff report, the SCRD put forward a recommendation to temporarily close the Hopkins Landing dock until a number of repairs can be completed in order to make the dock safe for use. This recommendation will be voted on at the June 22 Board meeting.

“The main repairs will be known once a contractor is procured and assessments and permits are obtained,” says Shelley Gagnon, General Manager of Community Services. “We understand that the dock closure is an inconvenience, and would like to thank users of the dock in advance for their ongoing understanding and patience as this vital infrastructure is repaired.”
