Southwest Housing Review

A scope and process for the Southwest Housing Review (SWHR) was approved by Council on June 22, 2020. The SWHR supports more affordable housing options in Southwest Coquitlam through a comprehensive multi-year planning effort with four work streams:

  • Examining neighbourhood pockets where residents have come forward requesting a review of Southwest Coquitlam Area Plan (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
  • Reviewing infill housing options in single-family areas to further address the policy directions in the SWCAP
