Military Firing Range, Rudloe, Wiltshire


Defence Estates


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.
