Customer Question

Hi my name is***** my family has been living at*****Silkwood go 9 years the last 3 a shooting range that is directly opposite our home has commenced operation after a long absence we have been put down and left for dead as the council has donated miner for this activity to increase by 200 % on what it done in the 90s.
With over 60 shots per minute within 90 meters of my door we hod no choice but to move my family out now we cannot sell this house as the noise every week end is unbelievable.
A test was conducted with 90 + decabels in my child's bed room withe council telling us the are aloud to reach 105 how can this be right.
This is happening every week end and only growing with the support of friends of the club within the council.
My mother in law has filmed ,taped and collected a lot of information on this incredible goings on that is happening in out urban environment.
There is 5 housed directly opposite this ridiculous activity in its earlier time before the stopped this activity the shot about 6 times a year in a respectable manner then stopped for 10 or so years they were offered to move back in the early 80,s but never did and now the council is developing them rather tha were our children used to grow up.
Any ideas on this matter ??
