I STRONGLY OBJECT TO THE PROPOSAL FOR THE FOLLOWING OUTLINE REASONS-

1 THE LOCATION IS INAPPROPRIATE - IN AN AREA OF OPEN COUNTRYSIDE THAT NEEDS PROTECTION AND TOO CLOSE TO SEVERAL RURAL VILLAGES
2 IT IS IN CONFLICT WITH THE WEST NORTHANTS JOINT CORE STRATEGY WHCH COVERS OUR DETAILED PLANNING UNTIL 2029
3 PINS HAVE ALREADY REJECTED A SIMILAR INTERCHANGE FOR THIS AREA.
4 THERE IS ALREADY ADEQUATE CAPACITY UNTIL 2031 AT THE NEARBY DIRFT INTERCHANGE
5 DISRUPTION TO LOCAL ROADS DURING THE LONG CONSTRUCTION PERIOD
AND MORE TRAFFIC 'RAT RUNNING' THROUGH MILTON MALSOR
6 IT WILL OVERWHELM OUR LOVELY RURAL VILLAGE AND SPOIL OUR WAY OF LIFE
