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.


The following timeline shows the projected phases of the project's five phases:

Phase 1 - Fall 2020
Values & Objectives and Neighbourhood Pocket Evaluation

Phase 2 - Winter 2021
Neighbourhood Pockets Amendments

Phase 3 – Spring 2021
