Temporary Use Permit (TUP) –  2 Year Extension

Whereas:  The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a State of Emergency call by the Province of British Columbia; and

Whereas:  The City of Surrey’s Senior Management Team is now working as part of the Emergency Operations Center to manage the pandemic; and

Whereas:  The COVID-19 pandemic has put immeasurable hardship on Surrey residents, families and businesses; and

Whereas: Now is the time to support the Surrey business sectors, namely our Class 1 – Residential, Class 4 – Major Industry, Class 5 – Light Industry, Class 6 – Business; and

Whereas:  The COVID-19 pandemic has and will continue to have serious impacts in all sectors of manufacturing as supply lines have been compromised, international suppliers are facing their own economic challenges, and it will be some time before we see a normal return to businesses in Surrey, in our province and our country; and

Whereas: The Temporary Use Permit (TUP) was created to assist in the transition of land use and in this case, specific to those businesses classes above that have a valid TUP; and

Whereas: The City of Surrey can support our manufacturing sector today with those businesses that have a valid TUP to not have to worry about re-applying as they need time to re-build and re-tool for the future;

Therefore, be it resolved that:  As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, that all Class 1 – Residential, Class 4 – Major Industry, Class 5 – Light Industry,  and Class 6 – Businesses have their Temporary Operating Permits extended for a period of 2 years without having to re-apply or pay additional fees to the City of Surrey for this extension to support them, their employees and families in their economic recovery.
