The impact on the local road infrastructure, particularly A5, A508 and A43.

• The consequential rat-running through the smaller roads, particularly the Heathencote and Showsley Road.

• Noise and light pollution as a result of the construction and subsequent use of the sites.

• Unnecessary destruction of countryside.

• Further pressure on local housing as the RFI’s will need thousands of people to run them so this will impact on housing requirements/commuting in the area given unemployment is very low locally.
