I object to the Northampton Gateway Rail Freight interchange because of the loss of farmland when the country needs to produce more food rather than importing it.
I also object because it will destroy a number of mature trees and vegetation which provides homes for wildlife.
Another reason for my objection is that the farmlands provide public footpaths which will be destroyed. These footpaths contribute to the social health and well-being of the surrounding villagers and would be detrimental to the lifestyle of those who love it.
