Review the Neighbourhood Concept Plan for the Anniedale-Tynehead neighbourhood of South Port Kells.
Anniedale Tynehead is the name of a large neighbourhood in east Guildford, located north of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and south of Highway 1. Originally characterized by its rural acreage lots and agricultural uses, the area is now designated to support urban development and the future home of up to 20,000 Surrey residents.
Situated over gently sloping highlands, the area provides excellent views of the agricultural lowlands. It is also home to many significant and protected watercourses, including the Serpentine River and several of its tributaries.
Planning for the area was guided by the 2005 South Port Kells General Land Use Plan (GLUP), which provides an overall framework for land use in the area. In 2009, Council approved the preparation of a Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) for the combined areas of Anniedale "A," Anniedale "B," and Tynehead within the South Port Kells GLUP.
The Anniedale Tynehead NCP provides direction on:
- type and density of development;
- urban design;
- parks and open spaces; and,
- engineering infrastructure for the neighbourhood.
The plan area covers approximately 408 hectares (1008 acres) of North East Surrey. It is generally bounded by Highway 1 and 96 Avenue in the north, 168 Street in the west, the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) in the south and Harvie Road in the East.
In 2003 City Council identified South Port Kells as an area of the City that would be suitable for new development. A General Land Use Plan was approved in 2005 to serve as an overall guide for land use, servicing and development in the area.
The Plan presented a vision for a complete community with local commercial nodes, employment lands, a mix of residential uses and densities and a variety of new community amenities including schools, parks, pathways and natural areas. It also identified the Neighbourhood Concept Planning (NCP) approach to plan future neighborhoods.
In 2009, Council endorsed Corporate Report R034 which approved an NCP process for the combined areas of Anniedale "A," Anniedale "B," and Tynehead within the South Port Kells General Land Use Plan.
In October 2010, following a comprehensive community consultation process, Council endorsed Corporate Report R212 which approved the draft land use plan. Council also authorized staff to complete the plan, including the completion of an engineering servicing plan, design and development guidelines and further refinements to the transportation, parks and land use concepts.
In April 2012, Council endorsed Corporate Report R077 and Corporate Report R087 which approved the land use and engineering servicing components of the final (Stage 2) Anniedale-Tynehead NCP. In July 2012 Council endorsed Corporate Report R152 which approved servicing and by-law amendments necessary to implement the plan.
