This area of land is surrounded by beautiful villages, a canal and the development will have a severe impact on the environment. We do not need addtional road and rail traffic in this area and Northamptonshire should not become the defacto "logistics central". This is how its already known to an executive of one of the UKs largest logistics companies (a personal friend of mine) and its an image that I do not think does the county justice.
In addition, land that is earmarked for this development is used annually on boxing day for a motorcycle race that has been running for 93 years. It is the world's longest running off road scramble and it would be a great shane to lose this for a concrete jungle.
I feel extremely sad for the local residents that are having to fight their corner against big business that we just do not need. A sad loss for the species that inhabit this vast area that will be lost.
