City of Surrey seeks public feedback on peacock removal plan
The City of Surrey will be holding a meeting tonight to discuss details of its peacock removal plan in the Sullivan Heights neighbourhood.
According to a City notice, the meeting will invite the public and experts in the field to “discuss this complex community issue.”
In a City Council meeting on July 25, councillors unanimously passed a motion to gradually remove the peacocks and peahens from the neighbourhood.
According to the Sullivan Heights Peafowl Relocation Action Plan, eggs will also be removed from public and private property.
Surrey Public Safety manager, Jas Rehal, says the City will “provide information and answer questions,” at tonight’s meeting.
“As for people who oppose the plan, we are moving forward with peafowl relocation, our expectation is that everyone will respect everyone,” Rehal told Daily Hive.
The information session is taking place at the Surrey Operations Centre from 6:30 to 830 pm.
