Morrisons new South West Distribution Centre Bridgwater Somerset, blot on the rural landscape?

Have you been down the M5 in Somerset recently and seen the monstrous new Morrisons Distribution Centre for the South West taking shape situated right alongside the M5 close to junction 23 . Well you can't miss it because it is a huge site and the main warehouse is the most appalling vision in green you have ever seen.
What a blot on the rural landscape of this beautiful part of the world and of course Bridgwater Council are crowing because of the number of jobs it will supposedly create. Neighbouring Taunton Deane are furious because they see the development as stealing a source of vital labour from Taunton.
Apart from the bickering I am more niggled at the way some of our rural land is being high jacked for commercial purposes in the name of job creation. Rumour has it that the owner of this piece of land got in excess of £30m for it. So, instead of breathing in and getting the smell from the cellophane factory as you drive past Bridgwater on the M5 you will now be met by this massive building as you make your way to Devon and Cornwall. As I said, you wont be able to miss it, it's just horrible. Shame on you Bridgwater Council.
