Terrey Hills gun club
Whilst riding the Mona Vale Road sniggle on the weekend I come across a sign on the side of the track highlighting the proposed addition of a rifle range to the existing gun club on Mona Vale Road, Terrey Hills.
It was also featured in the Manly Daily today.
Go to the Warringah Council website for further details of this proposal: http://www.warringah.nsw.gov.au/ePlanning/Pages/XC.Track/SearchApplicati...
or search for DA2011/0305
Do you want to be riding in front of, beside or behind a rifle range?
What will the noise do to the native wildlife in the area?
Should there be further development of this bushland?
It looks like submissions on this development are officially closed however I have just posted a comment using the general comments link and hopefully it will be registered to this DA.
There are already three gun ranges on the northern beaches - why is a fourth required?
Why does it have to be in the bushland that everyone is trying so hard to protect and preserve?
I won't feel comfortable walking or riding the tracks surrounding this rifle range.
Register your thoughts on this matter with the council and get it the public attention it deserves. It seems to have "snuck under the radar" so far with very few objections and what appears to be a majority support from what I guess is the gun club members. Lets see if we can get the full and proper local public's input on this one.
