The development is huge and would take out a vast plot of beautiful countryside. It is way too close to large residential areas, and would have a significant negative impact on the quality of life of local residents throughout the day (noise/traffic/air pollution etc.). The benefits to the local economy seem very small in relation to the significant adverse impacts, and I would argue that it is not even needed given the huge development at Junction 16.
