I feel this application will have a severely negative impact on the surrounding communities and the environment.
1. The ancient surrounding villages will be ruined.
2. The traffic that would be generated would cause havoc for local people in their day to day lives.
3. The M1 junction is already regularly overloaded with heavy traffic that spills out onto local roads making commutes to schools and work a traffic nightmare.
4. The ,coal infrastructure can not withstand the additional heavy good vehicles that this project will generate in its building and operation.
5. There is not the local infrastructure to sustain the additional employees, their families and children this project will generate.
6. Is this project actually needed? Is it needed in this area.
7. The negative environmental impact on the health and well being of the local communities must be a high priority. This project will will a catastrophic for local villages and people without any positives for them.
