Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 11 July 2018
From Robert Pyke

Representation

I write to OBJECT to the plan by Roxhill to develop a Rail Freight Interchange on land adjacent to the villages of Milton Malsor and Collingtree in South Northamptonshire.
I OBJECT TO the above on the following grounds.
Industrial rail and Goods activity in immediate proximity to rural villages will have a severe impact upon the lives of all residents.
Noise, air pollution and light pollution will adversely affect health and life quality in the villages, by night and day.
It is in conflict with the West Northants strategic plan agreed and signed off by the Inspectorate, as agreed to be retained as farmland.
The Daventry Railfreight terminal serves the same area and has capacity for massive expansion.
On the above grounds I STRONGLY OBJECT to the proposal.
