Green space logged for profit

I am deeply concerned with the lack of consideration city council is using when approving development.

As a resident of Surrey I am deeply concerned with the lack of consideration city council is using when approving development.

I recently presented council with a petition that almost 100 residents in our neighbourhood had signed concerning the development proposal on 154 Street and 105 Avenue. Not even 24 hours after speaking at the meeting, the proposal sign was down and the developer has his sign up for the condo monstrosity he is developing.

The site contains 80 trees that are 100 years old that will be logged for profit by the developer and yet the city does not care and did not listen to the current taxpayers who live in the neighbourhood.

So much for the campaign promises of sustained, livable development and green space they all promised the residents of Surrey not even two months ago.
