    We have just applied for planning permission to change use of a industrial building from Business use to indoor rifle range up here in the north.

    We will be known as Wearside Air Rifle Range

    Right in between the A1 and A19 near Sunderland, Newcastle and Durham
    We will be able to provide 50yds for 13/14 lanes and 60yds for a further 4/5 lanes.
    In time we will have a dedicated Pistol range which will accommodate BB pistol users too.

    We would like it to become a national shooting centre of the North

    There will be a Tea room upstairs as well as a shop to buy accessories.
    Carmelian Ltd will be moving on site for manufacture and bespoke products for the air rifle user too.

    Could we ask for support from the shooting community to make this become a reality?

    Here the link to enable people to support the application for this new shooting range.

    18/01933/FUL | Change of Use from Business use (B1) to Indoor Air Rifle Range (D2). | Philadelphia Complex Philadelphia Lane Newbottle Houghton-le-Spring

    copy and paste this into google.
    Those who wish to leave a comment will need to register before commenting.

    A member on another forum I'm an Admin of has posted his support on there for you & asking the members from your area to support it (I know that we have a fairly strong group up Sunderland/Middlesboro & Newcastle areas), so you may well get a few more 'supports'.

    We hope decision is made on Monday 11th March.
    This is the expiry date for application.
    Over these eight weeks we have been asked for no further information until Thursday last week.
    This was about the parking provision and how many people that would be on site to justify spaces.
    So fingers crossed for Monday

    Mel, get the white paint ready, you have to have allocated parking bays. The rest is goinging to be minor formalities.
