My wife and I are 100% against this proposal. My wife grew up in this village and we have recently moved back to support her elderly father. Milton is a quite family village and should remain that way. There are residents who have lived her for years and have a huge impact on the shape of the village and the community. The land around the village and the local area must be protected. Why do we need to develop a rail hub that is bigger than the villages around the site? The size of the proposed land take up is enormous. Why does it need to be here? This project will quite simply destroy the local area, increase traffic which is always bad at the M1 J15 due again to the development of the industrial section of Grange Park. What in this proposal is in the interest of the residents of Milton, Collingtree and the other areas potentially effected? Nothing!!
Please do not let this go ahead. It is simply another case of land being taken with little to no benefit going to the people most effected.
