I object to this development. I often walk the footpath from Barn Lane to Collingtree or down Gayton road along the canal.with my [] daughter on Sundays. She looks forward to this. This development will destroy our walks.
One of my granddaughters has [] and she will be badly affected by the pollution caused by 5000 lorries per day. When they stay with us, they (and my wife, daughter and I all the time) will be affected by the night time noise and light pollution.
As I often work in local warehouses, I know that the employees are not from the area and so they will have to drive to work from other parts and so there will be extra traffic congestion and pollution during the day.
We should not destroy our beautiful countryside for short term monetary gain.
