I strongly object to these proposals on the basis that the impact of such a development to the local community and countryside would be very bad. The proposed interchange would cause an increase in air & light pollution, in an area of great countryside. The loss of countryside from this development would be devastating to a huge range of wildlife and impact residents enjoyment of this area. The proposals appear to be unjustified in their reasoning and usage when so many underutilised alternative facilities of this type are available just a short distance away (e.g. DIRFT). With regards to the employment opportunities this proposal will supposedly provide, this is also unfounded as the need for these jobs, in this area, are not needed.
