This Fall you will have multiple opportunities to help shape the Fleetwood plan. Right now you can complete the survey (click on the 'Survey' tab below) to provide feedback on which growth option you prefer for Fleetwood. After that show us where you would like to see park and transportation improvements in Fleetwood using the Map Ideas tool. You can even add comments! Then check back here mid-November to see what we heard and participate in a new round engagement on the future of downtown Fleetwood.

The new community plan for Fleetwood will guide where people, paths, parks, roads and buildings will go. The plan will envision the future of Fleetwood. In doing so it will address the need to: integrate new housing; encourage local business and jobs; improve transportation connections; develop new parks, amenities and public spaces; and, transition to a net zero carbon community.


The plan area stretches from Green Timbers Urban Forest in the west to the Agricultural Land Reserve in the east. The area is included within the first phase of the Expo Line SkyTrain extension. It will be home to three future SkyTrain stations in Fleetwood, including 152 Street, 160 Street, and an interim terminus station at 166 Street.

  • Surrey will grow considerably over the next 30 years. Regional and City plans focus much of this growth in urban centers and along transit corridors. Focused growth reduces urban sprawl and protects agricultural, recreational and natural areas. It encourages sustainable neighbourhoods where people's needs (shopping, recreation, restaurants) are all within a short walk.

    Introduction

    Growth can occur in different ways. In very simple terms, there are three different growth options for Fleetwood. Today we’d like your input on these options:

    Option A - Concentrated Growth
    In the first option the objective would be to focus most of the growth as higher density in core areas around future SkyTrain stations.

    Option B - Dispersed Growth
    In the second option the objective would be to spread more moderate growth out over a larger portion of the plan area.

    Option C – Balanced Growth
    In the third option the objective is to strike a balance that concentrates and disperses growth more evenly in the plan area.

    To help you explore each option, and understand trade offs, we've categorized potential land uses into three areas: Core, Transition and Periphery.

    Core Areas:       

    • Located in the commercial heart of Fleetwood and near future Skytrain stations;
    • Are within a short walk of rapid transit and community amenities; 
    • Typically higher density, mid and high-rise apartments with street level shops; and 
    • Considered primary growth and re-development areas.


    Transition Areas: 

    • Located between the core and periphery;
    • Provide a gradual transition between taller apartments in the core and lower density neighbourhoods in the periphery, within a short walk of frequent transit;
    • Typically defined by medium density development (low-rise apartments and urban townhouses); and
    • Considered secondary growth and infill areas. 


    Periphery Areas:

    • Located around the edge of the Fleetwood Plan boundaries;
    • Where development occurs here it would be lower density, and sensitively planned to maintain the existing character of established neighborhoods; and
    • Some areas will remain largely unchanged.
