Translation – Explanation and Caution

The electronic translation service on the City of Surrey’s web site is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation may vary in some of the languages offered by Google. The goal of the basic translation is to capture the general intention of the original English material.

Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages. Unfortunately, not all the languages spoken in the City of Surrey are translated. Punjabi is one of the languages not currently offered, and to remedy the situation, the City has been in contact with Google and they have committed to making Punjabi available in the future.

Birdnests in Surrey are protected while they are actively used.

The nests of eagle, peregrine falcon, gyrfalcon, osprey, heron and burrowing owl are further afforded year-round protection under section 34 (b) of the Wildlife Act. The bird esting season is generally from March 15 to August 15. Some raptors, including eagles, nest as early as February 1.

Eagles and herons are protected under Section 34(b) of the Provincial Wildlife Act.

The Province has published Best Management Practices that outlines strategies to minimize habitat and noise disturbances caused by land development and building. If your development or building application is within 300m of a species protected under Section 34(b) of the Wildlife Act, please contact City of Surrey Engineering, Drainage and Environment section to receive further information to best guide you through development within context of these protected species.
