This project is within the green area dividing Town from country. We need all the farmland we can get to help provide food for our ever growing population. What is now a quiet rural area will be blighted with noise,light and traffic pollution,24 hours a day. Where will they find enough workers to employ.This area has low unemployment so bringing in workers will create traffic to already congested road network. Our infrastructure is not able to cope at present so dread how the future will. The area already has a rail freight terminal a few miles north which is not at full capacity. This is a farming area not an industrial one.
