This plan is an unnecessary intrusion into open country side & will serve no us full purpose to any one in the local community. the whole project is using a legal loophole to develop a site that will never be used as a strategic rail freight distribution center
As this option is all ready covered by the existing system at Daventry which already up & running & prime for expansion
The whole idea is ill founded as it will bring complete chaos to what is a an all ready night mare to traffic congestion with in the surrounding area this expansion would the whole area to become gridlocked
There are far more suitable sites available for this type of development where employment is low & people are looking for work this is not the case in the Northampton area as all employers are all ready having problems in recruiting labour & this will only make the problem worse
It is wrong to cover what is a natural habitat for wild life the whole area should be left as arable land in keeping with the country side
