Blisworth is a quiet rural village surrounded by open fields, such a large development will forever destroy this and join it with concrete to Milton Malsor. Despite having a bypass, the village is used as a rat run by people wanting to avoid junction 15 of the M1, this development will bring yet more traffic through the village which is not capable of handling. Being out in the countryside when you go outside at night it is dark and the stars are visible, with the 24hr nature of the development will create so much light pollution it will be as though we are in a city. Since there isn't the housing capacity locally for the workforce this development, nor a local employment need then where will the employees come from and how will the get to the development. I don't believe that there is a need for such a development when only 30 miles away just south of Rugby there is another such development which uses the M1 and the same rail link. The DRIFT project as I understand has yet to complete its stage two which is passed the planning stage.
