Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

For the following reasons I believe the development unnecessary and unduly harmful to the local environs:
- There is existing unused capacity at DRIFT only 18 miles away.
- Extensive noise, light and air pollution
- Increased threat of further development
- No local labour pool - employees would have to travel in increasing traffic
- Lack of rail capacity on west coast main line
- Local road network is already at capacity
- Loss of wildlife and local habitat
- Increase risk of crime
