We strongly object to this proposal because of the increase in traffic that this development would bring. The local road networks are busy and we certainly do not need the extra traffic from the workforce. Along with increased traffic this would then increase the air pollution. The site itself would increase the noise and light pollution with its 24/7 working.

The loss of homes and local businesses would be devastating and we would lose our village flower nursery.

The loss of beautiful countryside would be devastating too. We would be surrounded by concrete and warehousing. The loss of ancient footpaths that link our village to other local villages. The loss of wildlife and vital farming land.
