The Regional District of Central Okanagan has received notice of another court action brought against it by Kelowna Mountain.

The Regional District rejects all claims made against it and will vigorously defend itself at the appropriate time in court should this case proceed.

Two previous attempts by Kelowna Mountain Development Services Ltd. to challenge the planning authority of the Regional District have been rejected by the courts.   The most recent failed bid was in September 2014 when the Court of Appeal dismissed the case, upholding the validity of the RDCO Zoning Bylaw No. 871.

RDCO Board Chair Gail Given says, “It’s unfortunate that yet again, Central Okanagan taxpayers will be footing the bill for a legal challenge from this developer.   I can say that the Regional District will actively defend itself against these unproven and false accusations that are without merit.  I can also confirm the Regional District has yet to receive any application from the developer for consideration by the Regional District.  Any further comments will be respectfully reserved for court.”
