Regulatory By-laws

Need dog licensing information?  Want to cut down a tree? Putting in a swimming pool? Neighbour too loud?  Regulatory bylaws contain information regarding all aspects of living, working, visiting and developing in Surrey.

Bylaws are updated from time to time. Prior versions of regulatory bylaws are available upon request from the City Clerk.  Please note that these bylaws may be office consolidations and are provided for your convenience.  Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy; however, for legal purposes, please contact the Legislative Services Division for certified versions of the original bylaw and all of its amendments.
