Expansion of Clay Pigeon Shooting School
Landscape, Ecology and Noise
Ian Coley shooting school approached McLoughlin Planning for help securing planning permission for the modernisation of the club house and to extending their shooting ground. The successful shooting school based in Andoversford, Gloucestershire and run by Ian Coley MBE, former Olympic shooting team coach, wanted to expand the shooting area.
Ian Coley Shooting attracts visitors from around the country and has been rated as one of the best shooting grounds in the UK. Reflecting its position, there was a need to upgrade and expand the existing club house to provide an enhanced visitor experience and bigger gun shop. In successfully securing planning permission, we were able to draw on the support for rural enterprise set out in the NPPF, as well as policies in the Cotswold Local Plan.
As part of the wider proposals, McLoughlin Planning has also successfully secured planning permission for the extension of the shooting ground, working with Lepus Consulting on the various complex ecological issues associated the management of protected woodland and clay pigeon shooting.
