I very strongly object to this proposed development. My main concerns are noise, light and air pollutions in an area already on limits and local road capacities, I am already living on the A508 and appreciate what any increase will do, as we see on motorway closures presently and the forthcoming Towcester closures, when your pillows vibrate with the traffic volumes, you know this is not a good way to live! I moved to live in a village environment many years ago, now taken in a non strategic proposal with further development threats, no peace from road noise or fumes, who actually will benefit, certainly not local folk generally not looking for this type of employment either.
Please look to other existing sites for expansion, eg. Milton Keynes rail/Road linksOxford to Cambridge areas, higher unemployment areas along the motorway corridor.
