Written Submission to the Agricultural Land Commission on January 15, 2023

Mike Bandy,


This is a submission to the Public Hearing scheduled for January 23, 2023 concerning the possible inclusion of the approximate 300 acres of Federal Land at the corner of 192nd Street and 36th Ave in Surrey.


Last summer Surrey City Council endorsed the preservation of agricultural status for the Federal Land currently identified in the planned development for Campbell Heights North. 


While yet to be determined, should the current disposal action by the Federal Government result in the sale of the subject land, having it in the ALR will provide protection for continued agricultural use. Further, it is hoped that Surrey Mayor and Council will recognize the importance of maintaining agricultural use of the Federal Land, and will adjust the current Campbell Heights Community Plan accordingly.


A local petition supporting this agricultural asset has been signed by over 70,000 people. In addition, a Federal petition tabled by John Aldag, MP, was signed by over 8000. This and related detail can be found at 


Please recognize the importance of this matter and vote to protect this valuable agricultural asset from current Campbell Heights North development plans.



Nigel Bell

Township of Langley
