I live in thr urban area(Hunsbury) that borders Towcester road, off an off shoot (Ladybridge) that leads through to the roundabout on the edge of Upton Park accessing M1 and A43. During the 5 years here there has been a noticable difference in the amount of traffic using Ladybridge as a ‘rat run’ including barred heavy lorries. The same is true of the route through to Blissworth (daily commute). The local environment is already under pressure from pollution and noise from the M1 and current PLANNING APPLICATION at MILTON HAM FOR HUGE WAREHOUSES and a large new developement currently being built in nearby Kisslingbury It is common knowledge that both the Corby Eurohub and Daventry Freight Terminal are under utilised and there is PERMISSON FOR A RAIL FRIEGHT INTER CHANGE AT DERBY. This latest developement will DEVISTATE centuries old communities. These villages are also POPULAR RECREATI9N DESTINATIONS for the people of NORTHHAMPTON. THIS IS A CYNICAL MONEY MAKING VENTURE, THE LOCAL ENVIORNMENT WILL NOT COPE WITH THE NOISE AND DESTRUCTION TO PEOPLES LIVES AND EVEN MORE OF OUR PRECIOUS GREEN COUNTYSIDE AND WILDLIFE HABITATS DESTROYED..CONCRETED OVER. WE ARE ONLY A SMALL COUNTRY! THERE ARE MANY EMPTY WAREHOUSES, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS IN YOUR DESICION.
