There will be no pre-comp DTL practice shooting on Friday 19th January 2018. This is due to a request from the Environmental Consultants, they require access to the club paddock on Thurs. 18th and Friday 19th. Thank you.
The club has submitted to the EPA a detailed list and photos of all 'immediate' works required under the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) as prepared by environmental consultants CDM Smith. The club had a period of 60 days to have this work completed which has been complied with. Subject to any review by the EPA, we are confident that the tasks completed have been done in a professional and timely way.
A copy of the EMP is available for inspection by members at the club rooms office. Other future requirements as set out in this plan will be completed as they fall due.
The club can proud of the work of the environmental sub committee appointed to instigate these measures. Many hours of planning, organising materials and labour have gone into this project as required by the consultants and EPA.
It is important that all site users are familiar with and comply with the requirements as set out in the EMP and will receive an induction document in due course. These documents will be handed out at the club to all site users, contractors / cleaning and maintenance personnel as required.
The club has been issued with a new Environmental Management Plan (EMP), as prepared by CDM Smith. This plan replaces the original plan as prepared by Ground Corp. The EPA has allowed the club a period of 60 days from the 17th November 2017 to instigate the immediate requirements as set out in the plan. As a result, the club has formed a sub committee to comply with this requirement. Further ongoing requirements as set out in the plan need to be complied with on a timely basis and will be addressed by the sub committee as required.
A copy of the EMP has been provided to all committee members and
a copy will be kept at the club rooms for members to inspect. The current EMP is a 'live document' and may be amended from time to time by the consultants in conjunction with the EPA and the Clay Target Club.
