Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I would like to object to the development on the following grounds.
1. The cumulative impact of this proposal and another SFRI on adjacent land.
2. The impact of the development on the rural community of Blisworth.
3. The suspicion that the rail connection would not be used much and its inclusion is only to make the development "strategic", and so bypass the local planning system where it would be likely to be refused as it is not consistent with local infrastructure plans.
4. The loss of good agricultural land to hard development.
