Learn about the Highway 99 Corridor Local Area Plan.
The Local Area Plan for the Highway 99 Corridor sets out a policy framework for land use and density, a transportation network and an environmental management plan, as well as requirements for servicing, amenities and financing. The planning process for this area was initiated in 2002 and the plan was approved by Council in February 2004.
The Highway 99 Corridor is located in south - central Surrey. It includes the lands generally bounded by Highway 99 to the west, the B.C. Hydro right-of-way and 164 Street to the east, 8 Avenue to the south, and Rosemary Heights to the north. The Corridor has a gross area of approximately 158 hectares (390 acres).

In 2003, after public consultation (including four open houses), a market impact study and separate Traffic Impact and Environmental Assessment studies, Council endorsed Corporate Report C013, approving the Stage 1 land use concept. Council also authorized staff to finalize the Stage 2 component of the Plan.
