Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I object to the proposal because there is no need for another rail freight interchange so close to the one at daventry only 18 miles away which is still not used to full capacity.
If a strategic rail freight is required it should be further away from the current daventry interchange in order to make it “strategic”.
There in no capacity for sufficient rail freight on the west coast mainline
The impact on nearby villages, wildlife and environment will be devastating and will result in a huge increase in traffic clogging traffic routes already at capacity and resulting in acceptable levels of pollution.
