Public Hearings provide an opportunity for members of the public to voice support for or opposition to Public Hearing items before Council.  For more information, please review the list of Public Hearing items to be considered at the next meeting.

You may attend or participate in a Public Hearing meeting in one of the following ways:

    You can provide your submission by email to clerks@surrey.ca or by mail to Mayor and Council, 13450 - 104 Avenue, Surrey, BC, V3T 1V8. The deadline to receive submissions is by 12:00 p.m. on the date of the Public Hearing.
     
  2.  Register to speak to a Public Hearing item via telephone:

    Registration will be open from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the date of Public Hearing.  The submission form will only be available below during this time.  Once you register, you will be sent an email with further instructions. Starting at 6:45 p.m., City staff will contact you to add you to the queue of speakers.

    Please note the following instructions when you call in:
  • Your comments must be relevant to the bylaw being considered at the Public Hearing
