East Clayton NCP

East Clayton is the name of the first urban neighbourhood developed in Clayton Heights, north of Fraser Highway along the border with the Township of Langley. Originally characterized by its rural acreage lots and agricultural uses, the area is now home to over 15,000 Surrey residents. Developed over gently sloping highlands, the area provides excellent views of the mountains and lowlands and is home to many significant and protected watercourses. 

Planning for East Clayton was guided through the 1999 Clayton General Land Use Plan, which provided an overall guide for land use in the area. The broader East Clayton neighbourhood is separated into three plan areas, each of which was planned through separate Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) processes. These include the main East Clayton NCP, and two subsequent extensions to the west and north. 

These three land use plans, now largely built out, provide direction on the type and density of development, urban design, parks and community amenities and engineering infrastructure.

Plan Area

The East Clayton plan areas designate land uses for the south eastern portion of the broader Clayton Heights community. Combined, the plans encompass an area of approximately 314 hectares (776 acres), generally located North of Fraser Highway and west of the Township of Langley. The area is bordered by the West Clayton NCP to the west, and a future North Clayton NCP to the north. 

Background Information

In 1996 City Council identified Clayton Heights as one of several areas of the City that would be suitable for new development. A General Land Use Plan was approved in 1999 to serve as an overall guide for land use, servicing and development in the area. The Plan presented a vision for sustainable growth, efficient development  and a compact livable community. It also identified the Neighbourhood Concept Planning (NCP) approach to plan future Clayton Neighborhoods.

In 2003, following an integrated and comprehensive community consultation process, Council endorsed Corporate Report C006 which approved the East Clayton NCP, the first neighbourhood phase of Clayton Heights. Following the Plan's endorsement, properties owners to the north and west expressed interest in extending the plan area. In April 2005, following additional community consultation and a detailed review process, Council endorsed Corporate Report R062 which approved an extension west of 188th Street. Later that year (July), following a similar review process, Council endorsed Corporate Report R0156 which approved a second extension north of 72nd Avenue.
