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

Christine commented

I am a local Old Noarlunga resident who is not opposed to an outdoor firing range to support the sport, however do not feel that this is an appropriate location.

I do not feel a facility like this should be so close to residential properties, the primary school and the other local businesses. Whilst the sound of gunshots may not be loud, and be within the legal requirements, they will still be heard and I do NOT want my child or their peers having to hear it every day at school. I feel the noise pollution would ruin the tranquility of our lovely historic town, the venue hire business the Church is trying to start and do not want to hear it on a daily basis.

It is also right next to the national park which myself and many others like to enjoy for the wildlife and peacefulness, which I know would both be impacted by the firing range. I personally would not feel comfortable walking in the park in such close proximity to the range - no matter what safety measures are in place, just knowing that guns are being fired so close to me in an outdoor space would make me anxious. I do not have an issue with guns being used, I have family members who actively use them, however they use them in a much more appropriate rural setting.

Please consider an alternative location for the firing range as I am firmly against the proposal at this particular site.
