Dear Sir
This whole development is ill-advised.

Firstly the southern side of Northampton is already blighted with pollution from the railway, the M1, the A43, A45 and the various industrial estates between Junctions 15-16. If this development is allowed to proceed it will increase pollution to unacceptable levels.
Secondly the delightful villages of Milton Malsor and Blisworth will essentially be destroyed with noise and HGVs sneaking through to avoid congestion
Thirdly the congestion in the area is already ghastly and the extra traffic movements will cause gridlock which again impacts on pollution levels
