Southwest Housing Review - Neighbourhood Pockets

The Southwest Housing Review (SWHR) is a multi-year planning effort to support the provision of more diverse housing options in Southwest Coquitlam. The project consists of four workstreams, one of which is a review of neighbourhood pockets.

The SWHR identified six neighbourhood pockets for review. Residents in these areas had asked the City for for more intensive development opportunities than their current land-use designations allowed under existing policies.

Phase two of the project will look to create land use concepts for the three neighbourhood pockets located within the Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan area: Whiting-Appian, Miller-Grant and Guilby-Grayson. During the first round of engagement in fall 2020, these three pockets had the highest levels of support for the review of land use in their area. You can view a summary of this feedback here.

The other three neighbourhood pockets (Austin-Poirier, Blue Mountain-Quadling and Charland-Joyce) had more varied levels of support, and will be brought forward for more engagement as part of a future phase of the SWHR.
