I wish to object strongly because: The traffic in this area is already very busy and is dangerous for existing residents. • The road known locally as Washbrook Lane is a very dangerous country lane and not fit for the access requirements this proposal is suggesting. • The junction of Washbrook Lane and Quinton Road is dangerous. Vehicles use Quinton Road as a “rat run” to Milton Keynes. Sightlines are poor, congestion will increase and the bends on Quinton Road will become accident blackspots. This is currently open countryside and this development over 3 times the size of Quinton will totally change the local area and cause loss of wildlife habitats, open countryside and high yielding agricultural land. The biggest issue I see us that it will be people working in Milton Keynes and will therefore increase the traffic in this alreay busy area and add little economic benefit to the area.
