By far the majority of the jobs will be fulfilled out of the area, increasing journeys, traffic, noise and pollution, as well as the massive increase in haulage traffic to the area.
This influx of new workers will impact the local traffic volume in the surrounding area and will increase in excess of the road structure's capability at peak times, including already too busy A roads and motorway junctions, causing many delays, nuisance and increased pollution for locals residents.
The impact to Milton Malsor village (and surrounding villages), their culture and school will be detrimental, including traffic increasing in the village putting residents, particularly children, at greater risk. The local villages are not well designed for traffic, which causes a major safety concern.
