Destruction to wildlife that has been long established in the proposed area and the ruin of the countryside. Ruin of a picturesque historical village.
Immoral behaviour of the proposers when a similar site already exists barely 10 miles away at the Daventry DIRFT site where it is common knowledge there is a large number of warehouses remaining unoccupied.
The pre existing site at Grange Park for warehouses and industry making the proposal of this site redundant.
No concrete evidence that this is a necessary site, purely estimations and guess work.
The infrastructure of the roads are already at breaking point without the extended use of HGVs and vehicles overwhelming the already over used roads in the area.
Noise and general pollution to residents, air quality depreciation.
House prices will plummet leaving almost all residents in negative equity.
