City of Swan Noise Regulations Revised

18-May-2015

We have had a substantial, but not total, win with the City of Swan’s proposed guidelines for riding motorcycles on private property. 

Following our negotiations with the City of Swan we have been advised that they will be removing several of the more onerous provisions of the guidelines, including the stipulation that only one bike at a time can be ridden and the ban on riding bikes other than those owned by residents of the subject property. 

The guidelines now also reinforce that they are only applicable if noise exceeds the EPA Guidelines and only if they receive a complaint. 

Unfortunately we were not successful in having the two hour time limit changed, nor were we successful in our call to use distance to noise-receiving property rather than size of the subject property the criterion for frequency of permitted riding. We are still negotiating with the City of Swan about the two hour time limit and will continue to voice our opposition to this provision.

Ultimately this issue is still about being respectful and reasonable with neighbours, and we encourage anyone who wants to ride a motorcycle or quad bike on their property to talk to their neighbours and if necessary reach a compromise position that all parties can live with.
