Verifying a location

Before committing to a location or buying or leasing a building in Surrey, check to make sure your business is permitted in that location.

The types of activities that you can run on a piece of property is governed by municipal plans, policies and bylaws.

To verify the location you have selected is zoned to permit your business to operate, or if you require a rezoning application, building permit or tenant improvements, review information from the Planning and Building Department. Also check with the Bylaws & Licensing department to determine zoning requirements for your business type.
