Keep up to date with the Darts Hill Neighbourhood Concept Plan planning process.

We are undertaking a long term plan for the Darts Hill neighbourhood in South Surrey. The intent of the plan is to guide the re-development of this area over the next 30+ years.

This plan will help us achieve a healthy and sustainable neighbourhood with a diversity of housing types, inter-connected transportation choices, local amenities, natural areas, parks, and gathering places.

Background Information

In 2003 Council identified Grandview Heights as an area of the City that would be suitable for new development. A General Land Use Plan (GLUP) was approved in 2005 to serve as an overall guide for land use, servicing and development in the area. It also identified the Neighbourhood Concept Planning (NCP) approach to plan future Grandview neighborhoods.

In July 2016 Council endorsed Corporate Report 186, which authorized staff to begin the process of preparing a Stage 1 Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) for the Grandview Heights Neighbourhood #3 (Darts Hill) area. Since then, a number of background studies have been completed:

A Citizen's Advisory Committee supports the planning process.
