The plans do not conform to the agreed Strategic Plan which excludes industrial development at this location.
The development would expose the residential areas to high and unacceptable levels of air, noise and light pollution.
The existing and upgrading roads will not cope with the massive increase in vehicle movements. The M1, A45 and A508 are already congested ta certain times of the day.
With Rugby (planned) and DIRFT at Daventry - not far away this development is not required for the medium term.
The effect on wildlife is totally unacceptable.
The effect of BREXIT is unknown and it could be that the logistics and distribution industry will change and make this a 'white elephant' in the future.
