On October 8 at 9 am, the Surrey Board of Trade will be speaking in favour of Surrey’s Campbell Heights South Employment Lands application at the Metro Vancouver Regional Planning Committee meeting.
“The proposed development of South Campbell Heights in Surrey is important to the Metro Vancouver region because of industrial land creation, new jobs and businesses as well as international co-location opportunities,” said Anita Huberman, President & CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “This benefits all cities.”
Here are the facts about the Surrey Campbell Heights South Employment Lands application:
- Over 8.5 million square feet of building area
- 618 acres in Surrey’s Local Area Plan
- 418 acres designated for employment lands
- 200 acres of the 600 or 35% is set aside for a conservation area. One of the highest ratios in all of Canada!
- Up to 20,000 jobs being created
- Tax revenue for the city 17-18 million per year that can be reinvested into Surrey and into the region.
There are currently 135 businesses and companies identified that have expressed interest in moving into these employment lands when they are available.
“Having the opportunity to provide an additional 300-400 acres of employment land through the Campbell Heights South Land Use Plan, while protecting the Little Campbell Creek watershed, is important for the City of Surrey and Metro Vancouver region. This is imperative to the region’s growth and competitiveness.”
The Surrey Board of Trade will also present to the Metro Vancouver Regional District Board on October 29 in support of the Campbell Heights South Employment Lands application.
