Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy
As the climate changes, coastal areas everywhere can expect more frequent and severe flooding from storm surges and sea level rise.
To help prepare Surrey for a changing climate and help our coastal communities become more resilient, the City of Surrey is developing a Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy (CFAS) for Surrey’s coastal floodplain area.
The three-year project builds on recent and ongoing work in the area, including the Crescent Beach Coastal Flooding Charrette Series.
CFAS will also take a participatory, community-driven planning approach that will directly engage residents, stakeholders, and other partners, including First Nations, community and environmental organizations, business associations and groups, senior governments, farmers and agricultural community, and neighbouring jurisdictions.
