I object to the proposed development. It is too close to the villages of Milton Malsor and Collingtree and will destroy our way of life. The potential for air and light pollution is high. It will also prevent the enjoyment of the local countryside and the permanent loss of countryside. The proximity of DIRFT suggests that the location is not a strategic one and simply profit and developer led. This facility is not needed for this area and as unemployment is so low in this area workers will need to travel in cars to get to the site adding to pollution and congestion.
