Representation

* Increased traffic on roads that cannot take it
*24/7 working means more air, noise and light pollution
* There is an existing facility just 18 miles away and crime around that area has increased substantially
* Northampton does not have the workforce needed, meaning extra travel for workers to come from further afield
* Loss of habitat
* Development here would encourage further development, currently the M! provides a boundary for development
* Threat of reduced passenger services
