Newton Seniors Centre has a wide variety of services for seniors in the Newton community. This facility has a dedicated Seniors lounge, cafeteria and auditorium with stage, fitness and wellness areas, multi-purpose, activity and billiards rooms, and a computer lab.

Sustainability & Energy

Sustainability and energy efficiency are key priorities for the City of Surrey. Our actions in these areas are guided by our Sustainability Charter, an overarching policy document that guides us in maintaining a sustainable community.

Our innovative Sustainability Dashboard allows residents to track our progress in demonstrating our commitment to Sustainability across dozens of sociocultural, economic, and environmental indicators. See below for additional ways we are demonstrating our commitment to sustainability.

Social Planning

Social Planning is about building a strong and healthy community. Unlike other forms of urban planning that focus on the physical or environmental characteristics of a city, social planning focuses on the people.

Public Safety

The Surrey Public Safety Strategy groups all of our objectives and initiatives by one of four priorities. Working together, the four priority areas of the Strategy will organise a diverse set of programs and services and ensure we stay focused on the things that will make the most difference to public safety.
