OUR MISSION​

Fighting to save our beautiful town from the inappropriate and ill thought out c3 million square feet giant warehouse developments currently being planned for the A5/A43 roundabout and at the A43/Whittlebury junction.  

The resultant traffic chaos, 24 hour air/noise and light pollution, and the sheer size - up to 82 ft (25 metres) of these warehouses will impact on our environment, our health, our quality of life and will destroy the character of our historic town forever. These developments must be stopped.

 

WE CAN'T DO THIS ALONE - WE NEED YOUR HELP
