The Fleetwood Stage 1 Plan was approved by Council on March 7, 2022. This marks a key milestone in the plan process.

With the extension of the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain line, Fleetwood is going to become an even more attractive place to live. The plan provides a new vision for Fleetwood. One with a distinct urban heart centered around 160 Street and Fraser Highway, that is walkable, vibrant, and green. The Plan focuses on opportunities to integrate new housing, job space, and amenities in the town center, and near Skytrain along the Fraser Highway Corridor.

    Proposed changes to the Land Use, Transportation, and Parks and Open Space Concepts were endorsed by Council on October 16. Council also endorsed the establishment of a Rapid Transit Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) charge for the Fleetwood Plan Area, and authorization to continue with associated Stage 2 planning work.

    Plan Update

    Following the Stage 1 Plan approval, the planning process continued with more detailed Stage 2 Plan components. Updates include a variety of revisions to land use designations, adjustments to the road and cycling networks, refinements to the location of parkland, the relocation of Fire Hall 6, and the identification of potential future school sites.

    Rapid Transit CAC

    With significant re‐development potential to the northeast and anticipated high‐volume bus transfers from South Surrey, the City recommended enhancements to the 152 Street Station; particularly, a second station entrance on the east side of 152 Street with a pedestrian overpass. The City will recover costs associated with the 152 Street Station Enhancement through a Rapid Transit CAC that will be applied to development in the Fleetwood Plan Area.

    Next Steps - Ongoing Stage 2 Planning Work

    Staff continue to prioritize work associated with the Stage 2 Plan with the goal of advancing a final Plan for Council consideration next year. A summary of ongoing Stage 2 work is highlighted below. This work will be supported by ongoing community and stakeholder engagement and continued interdepartmental staff review.

  • Exploring how the Extension Areas of the Fleetwood Plan can grow – Engagement Summary

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Thank you to the 136 people who took part in the survey and participated in our online engagement tools. In March, 2023 we explored how Extension Area A and B of Fleetwood can grow. Two targeted surveys were conducted, inviting residents to provide input on what types of housing should be considered, how access to park space could be improved, and what local connectivity improvements they would like to see.

    Please see below to learn more about what we've heard in the surveys:


    Next Steps

    City staff will incorporate the findings of this phase of engagement into an upcoming Report to Council and amend the Fleetwood Land Use Concept with an updated land use concept for the extension areas. The community will have opportunity to provide input on the overall Fleetwood Plan through future engagement opportunities during Stage 2 of the plan process.

    The City is currently refining the Plan and will have further broad community based consultation in the coming months. Staff are targeting to bring forward a final Fleetwood Plan for Council consideration in the Summer of 2024.



  • Fleetwood Market Supply and Demand Update 2022

    In early 2022, Colliers Strategy and Consulting Group was retained by the City of Surrey to provide an update of current conditions and market trends in Fleetwood . The intent of this report was to update previous findings, assumptions, and analyses to current conditions, particularly given changing market dynamics and notable interest and activity in the past 3 years. As a direct result of both land use planning efforts and changing market conditions, the Fleetwood Plan area is considerably different than previously observed in the 2019 supply & demand report.

    Overall, due to anticipated population growth and changing consumer retail habits, there is expected to be a major shift in the retail and housing supply in the Fleetwood area.

    • In terms of Residential Growth, by 2041, the Fleetwood Plan area is anticipated to absorb between 9,680 and 12,177 apartments, increasing to between 14,521 and 18,266 apartments by 2051. This is a rate of approximately 484 to 609 apartment units annually. This annual growth estimate is within the plan buildout capacity of up to 2,000 units annually.
    • In terms of Commercial Growth, the areas around Skytrain Stations will require more than 360,000 square feet of additional retail space by 2050. The additional required commercial floor area could be occupied by uses such as full-service restaurants, service commercial, and other additional retail offerings. New commercial uses will transition away from single-level plazas and vehicle-oriented retail to denser, mixed-use retail which should contribute to a more vibrant and cohesive community.

    Land use planning along the forthcoming Surrey-Langley SkyTrain line has taken a significant step forward after Surrey City Council approved the Fleetwood Stage 1 Plan at March 7, 2022 Regular Council Meeting.

    The Stage 1 Plan focused on opportunities to integrate new housing, job space, and amenities in Fleetwood. It provided opportunities to advance Council priorities related to housing, childcare, jobs and economy, climate change, integrated water resource management, and transportation. The Fleetwood Stage 1 Plan presents a clear strategy to integrate land use and sustainable transportation systems, while addressing concerns around the supply of affordable housing. The plan will create a compact, sustainable, and transit-oriented community with a diverse offering of housing types, interconnected transportation choices, and local amenities that serve all residents.

    Initiated in April 2019, the Fleetwood Plan has involved a comprehensive program of public engagement and stakeholder consultation to ensure that diverse interests in the area were represented, including renters, homeowners, businesses, community groups, and public agencies. Thousands of Surrey residents have been engaged thus far through in-person and online activities including open houses, workshops, surveys and polls, online mapping exercises, as well as hosting an ongoing online ‘question and answer.’

    The approval of the plan allows staff to proceed with the Stage 2 planning process and presents an interim Development Expectations Strategy that will allow staff to begin processing development applications within the Fleetwood Plan Area based on the proposed Stage 1 Plan.

    In April 2019, the City of Surrey began the process to develop a comprehensive community plan for Fleetwood. In August 2021, the City released a Stage 1 (draft) Plan and launched a survey to get feedback on the plan. The plan will support the extension of the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain Line down Fraser Highway and guide growth in Fleetwood over the next 30+ years. It reflects the community’s preferred approach to focus growth along Fraser Highway and around the future SkyTrain stations.

    In November 2020 we conducted an online survey as part of Step 2b: Exploring Growth Options phase of the Fleetwood Plan. Thank you to the more than 900 people who took part in the Fall 2020 survey.

    We asked participants to consider three growth options: concentrated, dispersed, or balanced, and which option they thought was best for Fleetwood. The results show a preference for the balanced and concentrated growth options. Both options focus growth and density around future SkyTrain stations, and in Fleetwood Town Centre.

    We kicked off the plan (Step 1: Getting Started) in the Fall of 2019 with an open house at the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex, an online survey and stakeholder meetings. In the Spring of 2020, as we were moving into Step 2 of the plan process (Exploring Options) the pandemic hit. In response to the pandemic the City paused all engagement. When outreach resumed we shifted engagement online to address social distancing measures. We also re-framed the planning process to account for the new normal. Step 2 (Exploring Options) was separated into three distinct phases to provide more opportunity for outreach and reflection:

    • Step 2a: Checking In (Spring 2020 phase)
    • Step 2b: Exploring Growth Options (Summer/Fall 2020 phase - Upcoming)
    • Step 2c: Heart of Fleetwood (Fall 2020 phase - Upcoming)

  • Council Endorses Fleetwood Plan Vision and Objectives

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The proposed vision and objectives for the Fleetwood Plan were endorsed by Council September 14th, 2020 in Corporate Report R139, setting direction for the creation of the Fleetwood Plan which will incorporate core community values into future planning in the area.

    Public input played a key role in developing the vision and objectives. Between April and June 2020, staff engaged with over 1400 community members through an online survey. This resulted in more than 1,200 survey responses. Community members shared what they value about their neighbourhoods, ideas, interests, and opportunities.

    The next step in the plan process is developing growth scenarios and emerging directions which will be presented to the public in late 2020. Once a preferred set of directions has been selected and tested with the public, a draft plan will be created and presented to Council for consideration in spring 2021.
