POSSIBLE NEW USE FOR MORGAN BUILDING

The Mid Murray Council is seeking community feedback on a plan to see a building in Morgan remodelled to become an indoor air rifle competition venue.

The proposal would see the Morgan Small Bore Rifle club lease a section of the former clubrooms of the Morgan-Cadell Tigers sports club that wrapped up in 2009.

If the plan were to go ahead a change would need to be made to the land management plan, thus needing public consolidation.

Mid Murray Mayor Dave Burgess said Morgan Small Bore Rifle Club’s indoor competition air rifle range concept was an exciting one for Morgan.

Pending the outcome of the consultation, the venue could become only the third such venue of its type in the state.  

Council say while the venue has been available for events and public use, the venue has been used very little since the club wrapped up.  

Public consultation closes early next week.
