Developing in Surrey

You must obtain proper approval from the City of Surrey if you want to develop or change the use of land in Surrey.

Land use policies and development requirements are set out in the Official Community Plan, the Zoning Bylaw and in other public documents. Find copies of these documents at City Hall or throughout this section.

If you're applying for a Building Permit and the property does not require a Development Permit, Rezoning or other development application, skip to Building and Construction.
