Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I object very strongly to this proposal. The Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) on junction 18 of the M1 is only a short distance away from the proposed site, serves the same local area and has capacity for expansion for over 10 years. So there is no need for the proposed Northampton Gateway SRFI. In any case, this proposal is contrary to the West Northants Joint Core Strategy adopted in December 2014.
