The destruction of agricultural land which cannot be replaced. Once built over can never be used again for farming . We are an expanding population and need food not warehousing. There is already a freight terminal less than 20 miles away which is not working to full capacity Is there really a need for another one so close ?Also our infrastructure is not capable of handling all the extra traffic that would be involved. We have enough problems as it is at the moment.
