A lengthy legal case involving the Regional District of Central Okanagan Noise Control Bylaw has been resolved with a court-approved consent order.

The regional district and Kelowna Dirt Bike Club have signed a consent order agreement that details specific actions that the club will undertake at its track just off the Bear Creek Main Forest Service Road.

The agreement is seen as a major step to reduce any potential noise complaints arising from activities at the club facility and resolves an outstanding bylaw dispute over alleged violations dating back five years.

The club has agreed to conduct sound testing of the exhaust system of every motorbike using the track at least once each year before it sets out on the circuit.

In order to use the track, the exhaust sound level must not exceed 96 dB/A which is the current Canadian Motosport Racing Corporation (CMRC) sanctioned level.
