We are conducting a planning study to update land uses in the Cloverdale Town Centre.

Cloverdale Town Centre is the historic heart of Surrey. It is a distinctive, thriving centre for commercial, social, cultural, and recreational activities. It is a pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood with a variety of housing types and local businesses that celebrate its heritage and embrace its role as a regional destination. 

There is a need to update our current plan as new developments occur in the area, such as the groundbreaking of Cloverdale Hospital. The update will consider these new changes along with land uses, transportation routes and parks for the long-term future of this community.

Stay involved as we hear from the community and develop an updated plan for the Cloverdale Town Centre.

Plan area

The plan area is at the intersection of Highway 10 and Highway 15 (Pacific Highway). It includes 297 hectares (733 acres) and a mix of land uses ranging from residential to industrial.

Background information

In October 2000, Council endorsed Corporate Report C013, which approved the original Cloverdale Town Centre Plan. The original plan provided direction for land use, development, design, transportation and utility improvements.

Since 2000, conditions changed in the area that rendered aspects of the original plan obsolete. A number of significant developments also occurred that were not reflected in the original plan, including the construction and subsequent expansion of the Museum of Surrey, the development of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU Tech) and the redevelopment of the former Cloverdale Mall into a mixed-use neighbourhood.

On February 24, 2014, Council endorsed Corporate Report R035, which authorized a review and update of the Cloverdale Town Centre Plan.

On November 18, 2019, a new plan for the Cloverdale Town Centre was endorsed by Council. It was developed through extensive community consultation, with support from local stakeholders, residents and City staff. The intent of the plan was to continue the development of a compact, vibrant and sustainable town centre over the next 30 days. Review the Cloverdale Town Centre (2019) Plan

On October 30, 2023, Council endorsed Corporate Report R176 to allow for another update of the Cloverdale Town Centre Plan. This update will focus on supporting the planned new hospital and BC Cancer Centre, including considerations for medically supportive land uses and updated market conditions.
