This development will destroy hundreds of acres of beautiful Northamptonshire country side which is currently enjoyed by dog walkers, horse riders and hikers alike. It will cause noise and light pollution affecting the wild life and also the people who live in the surrounding villages. The increase in traffic will be unsustainable for the local roads especially the A508 and A43, both roads are already dangerous and have many accidents. Access to the M1 Junction 15 and 15A will be extremely difficult. Also there are many empty warehouses in existence already and these should be used prior to building more unnecessary warehouses. Finally Northampton does not have enough unemployment to warrant this development and if new housing would have to build, schools and doctors surgeries wouldn’t be able to cope.
