Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I strongly object to the proposed Roxhill Freight Interchange development at J15 M1.
As a young family we moved to Milton Malsor from Northampton town nearly 20 years ago, predominantly to enjoy a more rural village lifestyle. I am very concerned that this is now threatened; this development will destroy the much loved countryside and the wildlife that this supports. We use the local footpaths a lot and appreciate the peace, feeling of space, clean air, and beautiful views these offer. The pollution of air, noise and light would be disastrous. Our local plans show the area concerned to remain as farmland and open countryside, not industrial development. There is no need for this here, with the Daventry Freight Terminal only a short distance away serving the same area.
