I strongly object to the proposed Northampton Gateway Development for many reasons but primarily because the development would increase beyond all reasonable belief the traffic in the area around junction 15 on the M1 the A508 and the A43. Anyone using these roads today spent time in queues and the proposed development would lead to much more congestion. There is virtually no unemployment in the area so any workers would be coming in from Milton Keynes , Coventry or Leicester areas all increasing M1 traffic. The DRIFT development approx. 20 miles up the motorway has many vacant warehouses so in my opinion this development is unnecessary and could lead to empty buildings and destroyed countryside
