A Growing City

Surrey is a growing city. As it grows, we need to plan so Surrey continually becomes a greener, more complete, more compact and connected community. We want to create a community that is sustainable, resilient, safer, inclusive, healthier, and more beautiful.

The current OCP was adopted by Council in 2014 and goes through an annual review that citizens can read.
