I live very close to the proposed development, and am concerned about the how this development will affect my quality of life.
There will be an increase in light pollution as well as air pollution. There will be a considerable loss of green fields and this will have an adverse effect on the wildlife.
M1 junction is already a very busy junction and traffic in and out of the development will increase the number of traffic movements considerably as well as increasing air pollution.
There is already a rail terminal at junction 19 just a few miles from this development with adequate space for further development and of less inconvenience to local residents.
