I strongly oppose this planned development. Blisworth has been my home for 20 years. I raised my family here and this is where my children were schooled. I am the Scout Leader in Blisworth and have been using this land for many of our outdoor activities. The countryside will be ruined and we will not be able to take the children out for rambles and experiences in our beautiful local wilderness. Wildlife habitats will be destroyed. We do already get enough noise from trains running through on the mainline. This is tolerable but the noise and light pollution that will be created from the proposed monstrosity will have a serious impact on all of us. The increased traffic on the A43 will have a serious impact on my journey to work as well. Traffic calming measures were put in place when the by-pass was built 20 years ago but it will not stop everyone trying to cut through the village. There is no need at all for this to be built. DIRFT is just a few miles away and that looks like a ghost town not being fully utilised. I do not believe that it will bring increased employment to the area. Blisworth & Milton Malsor are such lovely villages I vote that we keep them that way.
