      I’d asked before moving here what was happening with the build. Been told the houses were due to finish this June. Regretting this move now!!

    Christ, how much more of Raunds is going to be taken over by these big sheds

    Why does Raunds have to have all these industrial sites when there is plenty of land near the A14? The infrastructure will not be sufficient and the light pollution dreadful 🙁

      Massive local opposition seems to be needed to block these bullying tactics by big companies. No concern is shown for residents. If we had wanted constant noise and light pollution, we would have chosen to live in a city.

    Bet the people who’ve just shelled out for those new houses are well happy about this. Where are they entrancing/ exiting?

    We have had letters from the Council today regarding this as we live nearby. It’s now up to residents to object to the proposal. Traffic on Brick Kiln Road has increased substantially over the years, the recent housing developments have added to that…constant industrial traffic on that road & through the new housing estate will surely be an accident waiting to happen.

    All these units! All these jobs! All the new houses! No more Doctors and no new schools to cope with ever growing population?!
    Incredibly silly.

      I agree Leeny, it’s always been the same in Raunds. They keep allowing expansion without putting in the infrastructure.

    Our schools, doctors and roads will not cope with the increase of traffic and people. It is ridiculous to expect everything to continue you can’t get a doctors appointment now when you need one. we haven’t got the infrastructure in place .

    What new jobs? Not for Raunds folk. Watching the traffic leave Warth park you can see the cars turn on to the A45 heading off to Peterborogh & Huntingdon and Wellingborough to the west. This development will be just the same. These people spend very little in Raunds.

    I bought a property on Border Park in May 2016- site sales indicted that development plans were discussed in regard to this part of land- just not size or scale. I have no issue with a distribution centre here, the problem as previous commenters have mentioned will be the access. We already have a parking and speeding issue on the site- in addition the children that platy on the grass by the traffic lights every day is a recipe for an incident. All they need to do is have the DC accessed via the side of McDonalds or via the A45 lay-by, which could easily be re-designed and add trees to separate the DC from Border Park.

    I’m absolutely shocked that the council only consulted with 375 homes. All these developments have a direct affect on residents in raunds because we use that same Raunds roundabout to get to our homes! Many more would have a say if given the opportunity.

    Its already a pain getting home with the Wrath park developments. The Wrath park roundabout is too small! You build a roundabout that can’t realistically take a lorry and a car at the same time & its going to be used for a 24 hour asda? Whatttttt

    We moved to Raunds in 2010 because it was rural and quiet. Since then we have seen the expansion of Warth Park, new homes being built and now a 24 hour Asda( i still oppose – why not close at 10 and keep traffic and pollution down) Roundabouts and Roads in Raunds have not been improved to cater for this expansion and its just so frustrating and upsetting!

    Thing is expansion on the outside of Raunds also creates a huge amount of traffic for residents in Raunds centre. Cars are always speeding because so many people now access the town due to development on the outskirts of Raunds.

    Speeding and the rapid development in this area is not good when other factors such as safety, traffic, pollution and local resources remain poor and stretched.

    Im 25 and i’m part of a generation that realises that development and growth is inevitable however Its becoming more negative than positive to live here. Expansion works when its done properly!

    This area has transformed so radically in the last few years let alone decades and the warehouses and lorries are a nightmare. Just NO. STOP.

    Do the council ever think about people who live here? And the strain on local services like schools and the surgeries ?

    I can’t see how HGVs can be allowed to go via residential road 24/7. The proposed green area will be in close proximity to passing lorries. This is serious safety issue for residents
