Land Use Plans

Community planning

Community planning in Surrey means creating vibrant neighbourhoods where people can live, work, shop and play. It also means the growth of a thriving, green, inclusive city where residents feel supported and engaged, and can enjoy public facilities and services with their neighbours.

Guided by our Official Community Plan (OCP) and the Sustainability Charter, land use plans provide more detailed context, considerations and land use designations for specific growing areas throughout the city. They are reviewed and updated to make sure they remain up-to-date and reflective of community interests.

The different land use plans include:

  • General Land Use Plans (GLUP)
  • Town Centre Plans (TCP)
  •  Neighbourhood Concept Plans (NCP)
  • Local Area Plans (LAP)
