THE second part of a planning inquiry into the construction of a clay pigeon shooting club will resume today at the Halliwell Jones Stadium at 10am.

Prospect Target Club is seeking planning permission to open the facilities at Prospect Farm on Prospect Lane after the application was turned down by Warrington Borough Council in February.

The blueprints are opposed by a number of residents due to noise impact and damage to Risley Moss.

It had also been argued that the development would have a harmful effect on a number of protective bird species with three local wildlife sites in close proximity.

The inquiry is expected to take three days.
