A 148-signature petition was presented to Wanneroo City Council last month asking it to fund one-third of the $220,000 cost and help with grant applications.

Complex president Joe Romano said there had been pressure on the organisation for infrastructure and improved amenities for members of its 10 associated clubs.

‘The sealing of the road has been on the agenda for close to 10 years,’ he said. ‘We’ve got to the stage where the size of the complex warrants the sealing of the road.’

With more than 1000 members, Mr Romano said the complex was one of the biggest in WA and helped keep guns off the street.

‘The complex ensures people who undertake shooting actively are trained and behave in a professional manner,’ he said.
