In Old Noarlunga SA on “Outdoor firing range and...” at 1559 Piggott Range Road, Old Noarlunga SA 5168:

Adele Murphy commented

Firstly I would like to state that I am not opposed to a firing range. However, I am certainly opposed to this proposed location. As a local resident and parent with children attending the local school, and also as a mental health care worker, I am concerned about the implications of a firing range this close to the township and school. In 2020, I have seen a dramatic increase in anxiety related disorders in my clients. The global pandemic has been hard on everyone. I am genuinely concerned about the position of a firing range within 1 km from the primary school. These children are between the ages of FOUR and TWELVE years of age. I do not believe that subjecting them to the sound of gunshots during the day will benefit them in any way. In fact, I could almost predict with certainty that there will be a number of students who will become quite distressed if this goes ahead. I am voting for the firing range to be located elsewhere, further south away from schools and residential areas.
