Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

It is my intention to object to the planning application submitted for Roxhill's Northampton Gateway.
My reasons are the following: Firstly, I am a local resident of Roade and believe that the traffic congestion , noise and air pollution will rise to unacceptable levels during the building of the RFI and will remain so thereafter. This will make Roade an unhealthy place to live and increase the risk of accidents and fatalities. Secondly, the development of that huge area of land will be ruinous to the character of several surrounding villages who will also have their countryside views spoiled. With the M1 acting as a buffer, residents currently enjoy a rural lifestyle on the whole and the villages themselves epitomise the beauty of Northamptonshire. Thirdly there is no need or mandate for another RFI in the same county according to government documentation on the matter.
