We want to hear your ideas for the Newton Sustainability in Action Project!

Newton Sustainability in Action Survey

About the Project

Newton Sustainability in Action is a neighbourhood-wide project to engage residents in identifying ways to make Newton a more thriving, green and inclusive community. We want to take the high-level goals of the Surrey Sustainability Charter 2.0 and see what those look like at a neighbourhood level.

We will work together to create a sustainable neighbourhood action plan for the Newton neighbourhood, including:

  • Developing neighbourhood goals and outcomes we want to see that connect with the Surrey Sustainability Charter 2.0
     
  • Identifying what makes Newton a community and the strengths and opportunities around the neighbourhood  that will help create a neighbourhood profile.
     
  • Coming up sustainable ways and projects residents, households, groups and the neighbour can take on by themselves or as group.

Phase 2 Complete

Thank you to everyone who gave their input via our survey, chatted with us at pop-up engagement opportunities, scribed their community love and wishes on our I Love Newton Walls, and helped us get a sense of what is important for Newton to be a more thriving, green, and inclusive neighbourhood. Check out the results of our Phase 2 engagement efforts in the Newton: Sustainability in Action Engagement Summary.

Congratulations to Wioletta Peh and Teresa Smith! Their engagement in the project has won them gift certificates for the Newton businesses of their choice to The Organic Grocer and Big Ridge Brewing Company.

About Surrey’s Sustainability Charter

Our Sustainability Charter is our community’s shared vision. It is organized into 8 inter-related themes. Each has a distinct goal, desired outcome statements and strategic direction to focus action. It is the City’s overarching policy document, guiding all planning and decision making processes.

The Newton: Sustainability in Action Plan will explore the Charter goals and what they mean to Newton. Learn more about the 8 goals of the Sustainability Charter.
