Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 09 July 2018
From Peter James


I totally OBJECT to the proposed plans. This is an unspoilt part of the countryside and the proposed plans would greatly increase air pollution, would have a dramatic affect on light pollution. Given the size and the scale of the plans the increase in traffic movement would make the whole of our community unsafe and full of pollution.
I have lived in the area for over 30 years and it is renowned for it beautiful and picturesque countryside, this would be gone and never to return. Alongside this would be the loss and destruction of habitat for many local wildlife species.
There are many 'industrial sites' already available, one roughly 30 miles away with all the infrastructure in place - why not fully utilise this site.

Just to repeat I totally object to the proposed plan!
