Military Firing Range, Rudloe, Wiltshire

Client

Defence Estates

Description

Planning permission was secured by CSJ Planning Approval in February 2009 for the refurbishment of an existing 30 yard Firing Range to provide a 26 metre range and improved facilities in accordance with current military standards, together with the erection of a single-storey structure.

The scheme involved a replacement target bunker/bullet catcher and firing platform in connection with the refurbishment of the existing range, and the erection of a respirator chamber for military training using CS gas.

The existing range forms part of a former military establishment, in the countryside.  The site adjoins a woodland and contains dense cover and other vegetation.  The application was supported by an ecological survey and report and an arboricultural survey.
