I am objecting to this application as I live close by and my children atten school in Blisworth. My main objection is due to the increase in traffic, and the subsequent light and air pollution that this will bring about. As there is another DIRFT site only 18 miles away, it does not seem necessary to have one sites here too. The local roads already struggle with the amount of traffic, this development would put more pressure on the road network. And finally, the impact on local wildlife and nature would be catastrophic.
