Then you have it easy, you can just go place your cache no fuss, no muss.

For the BC Ministry of Environment managed land, I would personally treat as a BC Parks type of policy.

Surrey's Geocaching Procedure:
1.
Geocaching is not permitted in the following Surrey parks, or park areas:
Green Timbers Urban Forest Park

The Glades Park
Darts Hill Park
Formal gardens at Fleetwood Park, City Hall, Hawthorne Park, Bear Creek Park.
Playing surfaces such as sport fields, tennis courts etc.
2.
All caches shall be placed only on approval by the City.
3.
Cachers must contact the City of Surrey, Parks Division, Nadia, Natural Area Coordinator at 604 501 5167, or nchan @ surrey.ca prior to placing a geocache. Approval of placement of caches is the responsibility of the Urban Forest and Environmental Programs Section (Urban Forestry) of the Parks Division and will done in collaboration with other Parks Division Sections.
4.
Geocachers are required to either meet with City staff at the selected park site to discuss the proposed location of their cache, or provide maps and photos of the proposed location via email, to obtain authorization prior to placing a cache. Authorization will be confirmed by a letter from the City to the cacher.
5.
The Urban Forestry Natural Area Coordinator will keep a record of geocaches and be responsible for implementing this procedure.
6.
Caches shall be placed so that they do not disturb Park resources (e.g. vegetation, soil) and / or cultural resources, or interfere with the use of the Park.
7.
When placing or seeking a cache, geocachers must travel on marked and maintained trails or in publicly accessible areas (e.g. picnic areas) at all times. All caches must be accessible from the trail or the public area.
8.
Cache containers will be:

Watertight

Made of material that will withstand wind, rain, frost, and other natural elements

Neutral coloured so that they do not stand out.
9.
Cache containers that have been used for food are not permitted as odours could attract wildlife.
10.
Caches are not considered to be permanent, they should be removed once the cache is no longer being actively sought.
11.
All caches must be marked ‘geocache’ and the owner’s name and contact information must be inside the cache.
12.
Any caches deemed inappropriate may be removed by the City

Personaly I wouldn't go and point the GVRD dragon. From the past geocaches that had caused problems were removed by park staff. As far as I know this hasn't happened in some time. Past pratice has to been to allow geocaching. Please let's leave it at that.

If you are unsure of a Surrey Park or park managed area, just go to the city of Surrey's website and use COSMO. It really is a good program.
