Activity Idea: Paintball

‘Skirmishing’ with paint-firing guns.

Because the sport often involves the construction of fortifications, can cause ground compaction and is inherently disturbing, it is not suitable for ancient woodland, or where there is a significant conservation value.

Interestingly, paintball activities are defined in planning as "wargames" and under the General Permitted Development Order 1995 Schedule 2 Part 4, Class B.3. wargames are exempt from permitted development rights. In other words, planning permission is required for paintball irrespective of the number of days in the year a site is used.
