As a resident of Stoke Bruerne I feel the extra traffic which will be using our village is going to make life intolerable in what is a 'Tourist village'. we already have in excess of 1.1 million vehicles a year using our through road which has a Primary school and a 20mph speed limit.
The developers at various meetings quote a volume of approximately 16,000 vehicles per day leaving the site, supposedly over the night shift! The proposed road structure from the site restricts vehicles from leaving the site in a easterly direction, thereby taking them directly on to the M1/A508 westwards.There is no restriction on the vehicles returning from the east thereby overloading the very busy A508.
Also the amount of smaller vehicles at shift changeover times will be enormous in a short space of time. Hence the concern of traffic through our village. This has never been mentioned at any meeting.
