Housing Action Plan Update

Thriving, inclusive communities need a diverse and affordable supply of housing. To address the needs of its growing population and housing affordability challenges, the Township of Langley’s updated 2021 Housing Action Plan will guide Township housing action over a five year timeframe. The updated Township of Langley Housing Action Plan was endorsed by Council on November 22, 2021.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback throughout development of the updated 2021 Housing Action Plan. The Action Plan was informed by a number of community engagement initiatives. It drew on the community engagement findings associated with the Social Sustainability Strategy project between 2018 and 2019. That project involved different engagement activities including a range of interactions with local residents and stakeholders. The Housing Action Plan update also drew on the findings of focus groups conducted as part of the 2020 Housing Needs Report project, specifically focus groups with representatives from the development industry, real estate sector, and non-profit sector, as well as a focus group with people with lived experience of homelessness.

Between August 30 and October 3, 2021, local residents and stakeholders were invited to review and provide feedback on the draft Action Plan through an online survey. In addition, feedback was received from the Seniors Advisory Committee, the Township of Langley / Urban Development Institute Liaison Committee, and the Langley Healthier Community Partnership.
