Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 02 July 2018
From Mrs Lyn Bird


I strongly object to the planning application known as Northampton Gateway for many reasons but will focus primarily upon local impact upon human health and perceived health inequalities which would be inflicted upon those who live and work in proximity to the site, as and when I submit my written representation.

My concerns extend to physical, physiological and mental health inequalities which will be exacerbated by the pending application if it were allowed to proceed.
I require time to review the applicants current submission documents but so far Roxhill do not appear to have provided sufficient mitigation against increased air pollution from predicted vehicle movements, or consideration of the impact of this pollutant upon local residents and road users, where air quality is already known to be poor. Similarly, noise and light pollution mitigation has been scant in consultation documentation.

Thank you for the opportunity to object to this application.
