On June 22 2020, Council approved a scope and process for the Southwest Housing Review (SWHR). The comprehensive multi-year planning effort aims to support the provision of more affordable housing options in Southwest Coquitlam. The SWHR consists of four streams of work which are:
Examining neighbourhood pockets where residents have come forward requesting a review of SWCAP land use designation of their neighbourhood;
Developing a Corridor Development Strategy (CDS) for key arterial streets;
Exploring the potential expansion of the recently updated Housing Choices Program into other areas of Southwest Coquitlam; and
Reviewing infill housing options in single-family areas to further address the policy directions in the SWCAP.
