My property is a grade 2 listed situated on courteenhall road, high street and northampton road.. It is an extremely busy junction especially at commuting times and when there are incidents on the M1 and A43 which causes extreme traffic congestion in the village and outside my home. My main concern when this occurs would see an even bigger influx of HGVs past my home and as a rat run trying to get out of the village with everyone else. The main entrance to rail central development is on the A43 however any disruptions will result in the access and egress would be on the northampton road an emergency exit. This will mean all hgvs no alternative than to use northampton road through Milton malsor and Blisworth to get on to the M1 and A43.Our property alongside many others in the village adds interest and contributes to the local countryside with tourists stopping for visits and photographs of our properties. I totally oppose the development owing to the adverse effects it would have on our properties and other listed buildings in the village and the conservation area in which we live. The above proposals would adversely effect our home and village through noise, nuisance, traffic, pollution and general disturbances. We regularly experience vibrations to our home from Hgvs and large delivery trucks yet unable to be granted planning permission to replace single glazed windows which also let out heat and cold and noise in. As retirees we chose to live in Blisworth having moved here in 2009. Our aim is to remain "guardians" of our listed property circa 1750 and to protect and enhance our most beautiful village against all unwanted and unnecessary developments.
