I am seriously concerned about these proposals. I have tried to find positives but cannot. I see the proposal of road improvements around Roade as a bribery towards persuading people to agree to this horrific change to the landscape. The local roads are already congested, the air is already polluted and I am worried for the future of my children if this scheme goes ahead - it will increase traffic, cause additional stress with increased journey times, increase pollution levels and increase poor health as a result. The green and quiet areas full of wildlife and farms - people’s livelihoods would be gone and replaced by terrifyingly huge buildings, with lorries parked in lay-bys, lorry cafes and increased fly tipping and litter. I fully object to Roxhill’s Northampton Gateway.
