    Check out our Engagement Summary for Step 3a from people who completed our survey, attended the open house, or joined us at a pop-up event. Key discussion points in this round of engagement included building heights around future SkyTrain stations, transportation networks within the plan area, introduction of the "urban school" concept, as well as a Draft Stage 1 Land Use Plan. This round of engagement underrepresented renters and residents aged 0-19 years. Throughout the ongoing planning process, we will continue to seek out underrepresented residents.

    In short order, Step 3b engagement will kickoff, and build on the feedback received during Step 3a. Thank you for your continued interest and involvement in the Clayton Corridor Plan! Please check back for more updates as they come through.

    Our engagement summary for Step 2b is now available for viewing. In this step, over 680 people engaged with us. They shared what types of buildings, parks, transportation improvements, and amenities should be planned for. In Step 2b, we developed engagement specifically for youth. The City partnered with CityHive consultants to lead a CityShapers in Schools workshop at Ecole Salish and a Clayton Youth Connect event at the Clayton Community Centre. Across both youth events, over 100 youth shared their thoughts for the future. Together, youth-specific events helped us reach a greater share of the under 19 year old demographic that lives within the plan area.

    Engagement for Step 2a began in December 2022, following the completion of Step 1. Findings from the Step 1 survey resulted in the development of the draft vision, objectives and development expectations policy as we begin to carve out the Clayton Corridor Plan. In Step 2a, we are building on these ideas. In this step we jumped into topics about the hearts of Clayton, moving around Clayton, and its community amenities. To promote the survey, we delivered postcards, ran a social media campaign, and did a media release. Components of the Step 2a engagement included:

    1. Survey
    2. Online Mapping Exercise
    3. Big Ideas

    Our “What We Heard” report, which provides a summary of the Step 2a engagement and survey results is now available.

    Thank you to the nearly 340 people who took part in the survey and those that participated in our online engagement tools. Since the launch of the Clayton Corridor Plan online platform in May of 2022, over 16,500 people have visited the Clayton Corridor project page. Of those, over 1,103 visited one or more of the information items, questions, polls, or tools. At the peak of engagement, the site had 517 visitors on a single day.

    As part of the survey analysis we looked at who we reached. Below are some of the demographic groups we heard from. As we move into the next phase of engagement we will continue to explore how to better reach a representative sample of those living in the community.

    Representative reach:

    • 52% of respondents were aged 40-64 (32% of residents in the plan area are aged 40-69)
    • 86% of respondents own their home (80% of residents in the plan area own their home)

    Opportunity to improve:

    • 9% of respondents rent (20% of residents in the plan area rent)
    • 1% of respondents were youth (27% of residents in the plan area are youth)

  • Council Approves Draft Vision, Objectives, Plan Boundaries, and Development Expectations Policy

    On July 25, 2022, Council approved the draft Vision and Objectives, Plan Boundaries, and Development Expectations Policy in Corporate Report R155, setting direction for the creation of the Clayton Corridor Plan which will incorporate core community values into future planning of the area.

    The draft vision statement for the Clayton Corridor Plan Area is as follows:

    "The Clayton Corridor is a sustainable community that is inclusive, integrated, and diverse. Known for its varied housing, the area includes compact walkable neighbourhoods with community amenities and services locate within convenient distance of residents. Clayton is celebrated for its range of housing options, character, thriving mix of local and neighbourhood businesses, and its livability."




    The draft objectives for the Clayton Corridor Plan Area are as follows:

    1. Focused Growth: Support thoughtful transit-oriented development surrounding SkyTrain Station areas with strategic opportunities for sustainability, and public amenity;
    2. Village Heart: Build on the Frequent Transit along Fraser Hwy as a local destination and enrich its sense of place, connection, and culture;
    3. Housing Affordability and Diversity: Provide a range of housing types and tenure;
    4. Climate Resilience: Transition to a net zero carbon community that can adapt to climate change;
    5. Green Spaces: Protect, create, connect and enhance biodiversity, parks, and natural spaces;
    6. Active Living: Provide a range of housing choices, and spaces and amenities to foster active living, wellness, and opportunities for social connection;
    7. Mobility for All: Develop active transportation and transit infrastructure to support universal access to safe mobility; and
    8. Robust Economy: Support a thriving and diverse local business environment.

    The draft vision statement and objectives build off the collective vision statements from existing Secondary Plans in the area and has been updated based on community feedback. They may be further refined as the planning process evolves and additional community input is received. Similarly, the draft plan boundaries may be reviewed and adjusted on a case by case bases, if there is clear planning rationale.

    The next step in the plan process is developing growth scenarios and emerging directions which will be presented to the public in late 2022. 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 2023.

    In the Spring of 2022 we explored the draft vision, objectives and plan boundary for the Clayton Corridor and ideas for how Clayton could evolve as SkyTrain moves from Surrey City Centre to Langley along Fraser Highway.
