Noisy + Hard to Locate Sports Planning
What is a Noisy and Hard-to-Locate Sports Plan?
The purpose of a Noisy and Hard-to-Locate Sports Study is to undertake research that identifies potential and existing sites and facilities for the development of noisy sports venues, precincts or network. These sports often tend to be a form of motor sport (water and land based) or shooting sport (rifle/pistol/shotgun/archery).
The common issues facing many of these activities include; encroachment from conflicting land-uses, poor facility design, negative public perception, large land usage requirements and small club memberships.
