2. New Developments in Surrey
Surrey is constantly growing, and is expected to be the most populated city in Metro Vancouver by 2020. In the last 10 years, population has increased by over 100,000.
As a result, many new developments are emerging, so there are many options for finding an accommodation in Surrey.
3. Transportation and Accessibility
The new Port Mann Bridge will increase accessibility, connecting Surrey to Coquitlam and highway 1, which leads to Burnaby and Vancouver. Not only this bridge helps create less traffic, but it will also make things easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross over the bridge, thus increasing transit accessibility.
4. Surrey Bylaws
Surrey also has some bylaws that also contribute to it being a pleasant place to live. For example, construction noise is only allowed from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
Another example is that properties are required to be maintained at an acceptable level. If there is a house on your street with a deteriorating fence or dead landscaping and junk, all you have to do is report it and the City of Surrey will take care of it. This maintains the quality of your neighbourhood, especially if you are trying to sell your home later.
