Fleetwood Town Centre Plan

Fleetwood Town Centre

The Fleetwood Town Centre Plan is being reviewed and updated to reflect current conditions so it can continue to serve as a relevant guide for future planning and development in the area. The updated plan will reflect changes to the physical and economic landscape as well as planned transit investments and development policies since the plan’s original adoption in 2000.

Currently at Stage 1 approval, Council's endorsement of  Corporate Report R187 provides updated direction on land uses, community amenities, and engineering infrastructure in the town centre.   

Get Involved

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the planning process - your input has helped develop the Stage 1 land use plan. As part of the upcoming Stage 2 process we will further refine land uses, develop guidelines for implementation and strategies for engineering infrastructure and community amenities. 

Check back here for more information on upcoming community consultation opportunities. 

Plan Area

The plan area is centred on Fraser Highway and runs from the 88 Avenue intersection in west and the 168 Street intersection in the east. The plan is bounded by 88 Avenue in the north and 80 Avenue in the south. In total the plan area encompasses approximately 400 hectares (997 acres).

  • Step 3: Refining the Plan expand
  • Step 3: Refining the Plan

    Following Council endorsement of the Stage 1 land use plan, the City and TransLink began more detailed work on plans for improved transit service in Surrey. This work was based on the Regional Transportation Strategy ("RTS") which confirmed the vision for rapid transit for King George Boulevard and Fraser Highway.

    The RTS also established a principle of supporting rapid transit investment with sufficient employment and housing to support increased transit service. Based on this vision, Surrey and TransLink developed and confirmed a phasing plan for light rail transit ("LRT"), with initial investments for the King George corridor. Based on these developments, staff prioritized secondary planning efforts for King George Boulevard and Newton Town Centre.

    Stage 2 work on the Fleetwood Town Centre Plan, including additional opportunities for community engagement, is anticipated for 2019.

Background Information

In 2010 a representative of the Fleetwood Community Association prepared a delegation to Council requesting a review of the plan and its implementation. In response the City retained a consultant to work with the Fleetwood Community Association to consult with stakeholders in the area and develop an Action Strategy for Fleetwood Town Centre. 

In February, 2014, Council endorsed Corporate Report R035 and directed staff to proceed with an update to the land use plan for Fleetwood Town Centre. Following Council authorization to proceed, staff began preliminary planning and analysis of the area and made preparations for community engagement.

In July, 2016, following a public consultation process, Council endorsed Corporate Report R187 which approved an updated Stage 1 land use plan and directed staff to undertake the Stage 2 planning process.
