  1. If this awful project is allowed to go ahead, I for one, will never ever have any respect for the Church and all that they believe in. Having been born in Lowick over 60 years ago to a farming family, I have seen far too many changes in this area. Money MUST NOT be allowed to come before our ever decreasing countryside. Our health depends upon areas of green fields. The wildlife are suffering so badly from pollution, noise and lack of space. The A605 is massively overcrowded already. The A14 and A45 are also gridlocked far too often. WHY would anyone even conceive this ridiculous proposed development. PLEASE CHANGE YOUR MINDS ASAP

  2. The Peterborough Diocese are selling 114 acres of land in Northamptonshire to turn Titchmarsh into an industrial estate.

    PCC (Peterborough County Council) tag line is –

    ‘PETERBOROUGH creating the Uks environment capital’

    The Peterborough Church (Diocese) should look at selling land in PETERBOROUGH not Northamptonshire!!!! Peterborough council probably wouldn’t allow the environmental impact in their county so why should we allow it here?

    What money does the church (diocese) need? Instead of selling land could we look into crowd funding for the Peterborough Diocese?

    What is the money needed for?
    How can we help?What can we do to help as a community to save the land and save the church in return?

    Can we see proof of their accounts to see what their situation is?

    Surely it’s best for the church to look at a different approach to work with the people of Titchmarsh rather than sell instantly and upset everyone who has supported the church.

    As a parish we should have some say in what happens especially as we pay tax towards the church.

    Can get Alan Titchmarsh involved?

    Can we go to the newspapers? Do we need a social distance meeting for everyone to get together and the press and radio for interviews?

    Billboards as people drive in to the village?

    Has this been explored with national nature reserves and forestry commissions to look into the impact on wildlife and air quality?

    I’m volunteering myself as a photographer if anyone is writing to the newspapers and need content.

  3. Please tell the Bishop that the warehouses on Halden ‘s Parkway next to the Glebe land, already have a devasting impact on our lives with noise pollution at night. We live on Lazy Acre in Thrapston and you can’t have the windows open on warm nights. All we hear at night is the constant humming sound of the air conditioning in the large warehouses, the beeping noise constantly through the night of forklifts and lorries reversing and the crashing and banging of loading and unloading. It’s dreadful and some nights I don’t sleep, leaving me stressed and tired the next day. The impact on health is not good. We also walk and cycle along here, with beautiful views over the lakes and the Nene Valley, all of this will be destroyed. Added on to what is already there, it would mean the warehousing area would be bigger than both the town and village and completely change rural life. Both are already surrounded by large, noisy and polluting warehousing and the number of lorries has got ridiculous. It would mean double the noise and pollution. This is also the route for all the children travelling to Prince William School, with more traffic and more lorries, it will make it even more dangerous for them. We should be saving land like this to help us all with our mental health and well-being, especially after the pandemic, not threatening us with more warehousing and lorries which will have such a detrimental impact on the lives of people in both Titchmarsh and Thrapston. If the church can’t see that, then they are not worthy of preaching to people about looking after others.
