I strongly object to this development as the road links around the area are already often heavily congested and not necessarily at peak times. If the development were to go ahead this would further increase traffic and cause major disruptions, if and when the inevitable holdups occur on the M1, A45, A43, A508 or A5, with traffic using alternative routes through small villages.
Northamptonshire does not have available labour to serve the development and traffic flow would increase even further with workers travelling to and from it.
DIRFT is very close and therefore this development is not required.
Thank you.
