October 5, 2017 Agriculture & Food Security Advisory Committee (AFSAC) Meeting

On October 5, 2017, staff presented the AFSAC with land use options under consideration along the NCP’s 168 Street Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) interface and asked for their input pertaining to conceptual land use options and agricultural and food security issues.  AFSAC’s meeting agenda, and staff’s presentation to the committee, are available here:

The minutes from this meeting will be posted on AFSAC’s webpage following adoption at their November 2nd meeting.

October 2, 2017 Stakeholder Meeting

On October 2, 2017 City Staff hosted a stakeholder meeting to gather feedback on conceptual land use options in the southern tip of the NCP area, south of 16A Avenue.  Participants completed a survey to register their preferences regarding land use in this area.  Here are copies of the presentation and survey:

Results of the survey will inform staff’s recommendation to City Council in an upcoming corporate report.


On June 12, 2017, Surrey City Council initiated a review of the Sunnyside Heights Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP).  As part of the review, Council introduced a six month development moratorium in the Sunnyside Heights NCP area.  The purpose of this review is to:

  1. Review of the area’s land use plan designations.  Staff will review the Land Use Concept approved as part of the 2005 Grandview Heights NCP Area 2 (Sunnyside Heights) NCP, and recommend potential amendments to ensure consistency between City policies and current development trends.
  2. Allow time for acquisition of a new elementary school site in the area.  Recent demographic and development trends have resulted in more families and more elementary school aged children locating in the Sunnyside Heights NCP Area than previously anticipated, leading to the need for one additional elementary school to support future residents.

A report with staff’s recommendations will be provided to Council for consideration by late fall, 2017.

Process and Timeline

NCP review will generally adhere to the following timeline and tasks, as laid out in Corporate Report R129, culminating with a report to Council recommending future land use and development actions based on outcomes of the various studies and consultations:




May-December, 2017
