My objection to this plan is that it will decemate acres of valuable farmland that will be needed in the future. Pollution levels are far above EU levels for this area , further pollution would be extremely damaging. Traffic congestion is already far too dense for this area. The quality of life for the surrounding villages would be intolerable. The M1 is not capable of carrying further volumes of commercial traffic. When there are problems on the junctions 16 15 and 15a our villagers become “ratruns “. The whole idea of building these enormous wharehouse does not make sense when there is more than enough capacity at the Daventry Dirf.
