As a local resident and user of the countryside in the vicinity around coirteenhall, I would be objecting to the proposal for a number of reason
- traffic is today extremely busy in the area and the additional employment and transportation vehicles this would bring will have a sognificant impact on the current infrastructure.
- the current rail freight interchange at J18 is massively under utilised and still has capacity to be used
- loss of green space for families to enjoy and wildlife.
- impact on the water table. There was a recent storm where flooding was witnessed in areas that previously had never flooded. New houses were recently built in these areas
