This committee advises council on ways to increase arts, heritage services & cultural activity.

The purpose of the Culture Development Advisory Committee is to research and provide advice to Council on strategies to increase arts, heritage services, and cultural activity in Surrey, and to enhance Surrey's profile, community identity, and civic pride to achieve the benefits of being a creative urban cultural centre in Canada.

Council has restructured the advisory committees and the mandate for the Culture Development Advisory Committee will now be handled by the newly established standing committee, the Parks, Recreation and Culture Committee (PRCC).
