The proposed plans are so huge they threaten the way of life for everyone in the Upper Nene Valley. The developers aim to carve up hundreds of acres of green farm land and replace it with warehouses for as far as the eye can see. This is no idle overstatement. Some of the proposed structures will be 80 feet high – so will be seen on the horizon for miles around.
More than this, however, is the potential to flood our local roads with huge new numbers of HGVs. The A605 is already congested and the addition of several purpose-built logistics sites is only going to make matters worse.
Northamptonshire must not be allowed to become a county of warehouses. Communities must join together to stop this incessant over-development.
