Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 11 July 2018
From Lesley Anne Pyke

Representation

I strongly object to the proposed Roxhill Rail Freight Interchange Northampton Gateway J 15 / M1.
I object to this development within such a residential area with a thriving community life, good schools, churches and clubs, all supported.
I object as DIRFT is only a few miles away. DIRFT serves the same locality and has capacity for expansion for 10 yrs.
I object to this development as it is not complying to the Core Strategy Plan enlisted in this area.
I object on grounds of noise pollution, light pollution, nighttime railway shunting, all conversely affecting the health of the many residents.
I object on the grounds of traffic congestion in small residential villages, thus disrupting access to doctors surgeries, local shops and schools.
