Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 08 July 2018
From Shane McDermott


I OBJECT to the proposal because:

1. The Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal is only a short distance away from this site, serves the same local area and has capacity for expansion for over ten years.

2. The local footpath network will be destroyed, particularly the path between Milton Malsor and Collingtree.

3. The proposal will destroy hundreds of acres of local countryside and bring industry into an area that is an important gap between town and country.

4. There will be increased congestion through the village when there is congestion on the M1.
