May 2017

On May 8th, 2017, Surrey City Council approved a 'draft' Land Use Concept Plan for South Campbell Heights, to be presented at an upcoming public open house to receive comments and gauge support for the draft land use concept and planning principles.

See Corporate Report R095, titled "South Campbell Heights Land Use Plan Update" for more details.

LAP Planning Process

The Local Area Plan is being conducted in accordance with a Council approved Planning Terms of Reference ("ToR"), identified below.

Stage 1 of the planning process is currently underway and is estimated to be completed by the summer of 2017. Following Stage 1 approval, an amendment of the OCP and the Metro Vancouver Regional RGS would be initiated in order to achieve consistency with the approved LAP and to resolve the Special Study Area designation in these plans. The RGS amendment process is expected to take three to six months and is estimated to be completed in the winter of 2017.

Following Stage 1 approval, the Stage 2 portion of the planning process would then commence and include the Engineering Servicing Strategy (Sewer, Water, Drainage, Transportation, and Financing), but only upon the resolution of the Special Study Area designation in the OCP and the Metro Vancouver RGS. Stage 2 is estimated to take an additional year to complete.

Past Planning Consultation

The local area planning process involves significant consultation with stakeholders, land owners, intergovernmental agencies, city committees and the Public.

On May 31, 2016, a Public Information Meeting was held at Shannon Hall to discuss the South Campbell Heights Local Area Plan.  Open House material available below:


On September 14, 2015, Surrey City Council initiated a Local Area Planning process for the South Campbell Heights Area. The South Campbell Heights Local Area Plan ("LAP") includes lands that are outside of the agricultural land reserve ("ALR") and south of the existing Campbell Heights Business Park near the Township of Langley border. The LAP area is approximately 245 hectares (600 acres) in size. The lands are identified as a “Special Study Area” in both the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy ("RGS") and the Surrey Official Community Plan (“OCP”) indicating an area of the City where future land planning is projected, potentially leading to changes from current land use in the future. All of the lands within the LAP area are currently outside of the Greater Vancouver Sewerage & Drainage District's ("GVS&DD") Fraser Sewerage Area and the Regional Growth Boundary.
