I strongly object to this for many reasons.
1 My family have lived in this beautiful rural countywide all their lives and it will be ruined and devastated by these plans.
2 The air pollution will be greatly increased from the extra cars, vans and HGVS using the roads in this area
3 The traffic through these villages (Milton Mslsor and Blisworth) will be astronomical.
4. We will lose an immense amount of agricultural land at a time when we need to produce more food.
5 The land between Milton and Blisworth is a haven for wildlife. All of this would be lost and would be devastating for these species.
6. The footpaths which connect Milton to other villages would be destroyed.
7. Northamptonshire only has a few medium sized towns and another huge freight terminal is not needed
8. Our unemployment level in Northamptonshire is very low and so therefore employees would need to travel long distances to get to work thus making more and more air pollution.
9. Crime levels will increase if the area is industrialised (DRIFT is a prime example of this).
10. Our villages will be used for parking by the new workforce.
11. The noise pollution will be constant and ruin the peace of a quiet countryside village. Light pollution will also be a big problem.
12. Our views of the countryside, which is one of the reasons we moved here, will be totally and utterly ruined by huge ugly warehouses.
13. It's just discusting that this is even being considered!!!!! It's not needed or wanted and will devastate our whole community if it's allowed to go ahead.
