The City of Surrey has an extensive collection of building development statistics about various communities, but most of that information is only available as raw data. I decided to take that data and develop a set of graphs that show the information on housing building permits issued. While the graphs tell the story of Surrey’s residential development, I found it interesting to see how the financial crash in 2009 affected multi-family housing starts in Surrey, but not single-family housing. Also, when you look at the overall numbers, each community in Surrey had its own peak year of building permits issue. The graphs also show which communities have seen the least development in recent years like Guildford. Finally over the last decade, Surrey has shifted from developing most single-family housing to mostly multi-family housing.
