Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 10 July 2018
From Margaret Denny

Representation

There is no valid requirement for another rail freight interchange in this area, it is only 17 miles to to the Daventry interchange
The submission lists the provision of jobs for local people as a benefit, in this area there is a very high level of employment and workers would have to be brought in from other areas,
The extra road traffic generated would have a very bad effect on the local area both from an increase in road crowding and increase of harmful emissions.
The loss of countryside providing a green barrier between urban Northampton and the surrounding villages
