Not often a new range comes along - this one will replace the demolished Thorn Range & will include more than just 22 rifles.

At this time there are ~100 against & ~45 in support of the range.

Please add your support & any valid comments to help the case & then share to others.

Daman - I suggest use the contact details on the planning page & ask to join a club that will use it - that in itself will help more than a 'supported' on the council web page - people expressing to join & use it if approved & built would be well received.

I've supported it. I feel the clubs could do more to let people know it exists though, as a past user of the range, I had no idea it was happening

quite agree! they dont use any form of publicity other than their web page! no soc media, forums or twitter, Farcebook etc.

I have advised them a number of times to go talk to the guys at Silverstone who have been thru it all & have lots of experience in this - but you cant lead that horse to fresh grass let alone water!
