Plan Surrey 2013: Official Community Plan
PLANSURREY 2013 | OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN
B4 POLICIES: General
B4 Healthy Neighbourhoods
Develop complete, accessible and walka- ble green neighbourhoods through the planning and development of new neigh- bourhoods and through sensitive redevel- opment within existing neighbourhoods (see Figure 19). Plan and design urban neighbourhoods with sufficient densities to support a high- quality transit system that is accessible to most residents. Clearly define neighbourhood centres, in- cluding appropriately-scaled commercial and community facilities. Where appropri- ate, several adjacent neighbourhoods may share a neighbourhood centre. Foster safe and socially-cohesive neigh- bourhoods by supporting neighbourhood design and community-building initiatives that bring people together in public spac- es.
Build complete, walkable and green neighbourhoods
Complete, walkable and green neighbour- hoods provide opportunities for working, living and recreating while accommodating the needs of all age groups and abilities. These neighbourhoods are safe to move around in, provide a mix of housing types for a range of incomes and households, provide convenient transportation alterna- tives and offer accessible natural areas. The City of Surrey is committed to plan- ning and supporting neighbourhoods that provide a high quality of life, promote healthy living, provide opportunities for social connections and that sustain a healthy natural environment.
In order to meet Objective B4, the follow- ing policies apply:
