Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 28 June 2018
From Gregory Hall

Representation

The areas I will include in my submission are in relation to the following:
- Need for Northampton Gateway given Dirft (Daventry/crick) has capacity and is only a few miles away;
- Impact of the proposed development in terms of traffic given difficulties already experienced on the M1 (junctions 16 to 14), A43 and A508;
- Shortage of warehouse staff in the area of Northampton meaning unnecessary commuting from Leicester and Milton Keynes to fill the proposed jobs being generated by the development;
- Lack of available routes on the railway being used by the proposed development; and,
- Lack of combined impact accessment provided in documentation regarding Rail Central.
