Representation Summary:

Monks Kirby parish council represents an area adjacent to the proposed expansion of Magna Park, to the west within Warwickshire.
The Councils concerns are the affect on the local infrastructure and in particular the A5.
The A5 at present is overcrowded and no plans are in place to upgrade. This is recognised by the Midlands Connect Strategy 2017 - 2030. Any further expansion will exacerbate the issue. MK will suffer unduly as if the main trunk route becomes congested the more minor routes through our Parish, unsuited to greater traffic flows, will be overused by both HGVs and staff commuting.
